    Have you checked the boot order in your bios? If the system is looking on every drive for boot files that would cause your delay.

    I hope the OP didn't get offended ? But if he comes back, I have a similar setup on my rig and also have a similar enclosure and have no issues in booting the system. I believe his BIOS must be searching all of the disks, and at BIOS time, no driver has been loaded yet. I didn't check his MB, it may not have support for the E-Sata card he has installed. There maybe a BIOS update and I would have him check into that.

    Hi.
    The boot order is just the 1st SSD where Windows is installed.
    from the bios boot menu, I have removed anything that might cause the bios to search for other boot drives. so only SSD is present.

    Hi. I have the latest bios available for my MB.
    It does have esata support. I posted a link to my MB specifications in previous post. Asus P8Z77-V-Deluxe.
    I think the bios is setup correctly to only look for boot option in the SSD where windows is installed.

    There are two log collectors: DM and BETA
    At some time the BETA log collector will replace the DM log collector.
    The BETA log collector will collect more useful logs.
    Please run the BETA log collector near the bottom half of this web page and post a zip into this thread.

    Go into bios and disable the oprom for asmedia 1061.

    It is under advanced menu asm1061 oprom ---> disabled.

    The oprom reacquired when u boot from this controller and the bios try to scan the drive to find out if u have an os installation there.
    So for an esata data drive it must be disabled.
    Also for the hot-swap and windows fast boot to work reliably u need the driver 3.2.3.0 that already installed.
