Intel boot agent slowing down boot

Okay, so I installed a Intel Pro 1000GT. Card works good and seems to have helped some with streaming content. But since installing it my boot takes about 20-30 seconds longer because the card runs Boot Agent after the mobo bios. Does anyone know how to remove the boot file from this device? I am not ever going to network boot it, so this is just slowing down the boot for no good reason.

I have gone into the IBAUtil.exe and run FLASHDISABLE. Now it says the flash is cleared, but it still runs boot agent at startup.

  1. Cleared it up by removing the offending card. Not really a fix. My boot is much better now that I am not running a bootable NIC, SCSI controller, and I have a fresh OS install ;)

    If anyone does come up with a fix I am all ears.
