Thanks for the input, i will check this out of the weekend. I agree 20 second spin up is unacceptable.
NIce idea about the BIOS, I have a recent (2010) MO so I think it should support the dealy. I will check.
If not then I have two choices.
Live with it: since it ONLY happens when I boot then works jsut fine.
Or re-install one a single disk and try all over
