Just to clarify: Are you saying when you start your PC up after the BIOS splash screen your system has a delay detecting IDE devices?

If this is the case it may be worth trying to boot your system with just the hard disk attached (Remove connection for CD / DVD Drive etc).

Have you tried replacing the IDE cable for your hard disk drive?

It's a cheap suggestion. Have you tried starting your PC up with just your keyboard, mouse, VGA, and power attached?
