I was having problems with an ESATA drive and accidently installed an incorrect JMicron PCI express to sata II host controller. I thought I was installing a controller for the normal hard drives. I don't have a PCIe SATA controller. Doh!
ESATA problem is sorted.
Now when I now boot the controller says it is looking for a drive and pauses for about 30 seconds which seems like an eternity when you're in a rush.
Any idea how to uninstall said controller?
I'm not too high tech so keep the advice simple please.

Sorry, I asked that question really badly. My small brain was trying to do my day job and home PC problems at the same time!
Basically when I boot I have the following screen appear after the AMIBIOS screen:
JMicron Technology Corp.
PCI Express to SATA II Host controller ROM v1.07.16

I don't have a PCIe to SATA II card. All my HD's are connected direct to the motheboard. I don't know if I accidently installed a driver for this. The JMicron screen appears to be there for possibly a minute. I'd like to remove this.
That's solved it. I'd flashed the bios in an attempt to solve my earlier the esata problems. When I was putting in bios the settings I had enabled the onboard SATA controller, now it's disabled I'm back to super fast boots
I thought the enabling onboard controller would be neccessary to operate the hard drives. No idea what that does then! I tend to put settings in to bios and just hope I've done the right thing. Mayby I should read up!
