I just installed a new data drive in my desktop machine. It's a 500 GB drive.
I use a primary 40 GB to boot from.
Apparently, it is slow to spin up. When I do a cold boot, the system mounts
the boot drive and then brings up safe mode when it can't mount the second
drive. If I just reboot, it comes up on the second try and continues to
operate just fine.
Is there something I can do to add another ten seconds to give the drive time
to spin up?
One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them,
One OS to bring them all, and in the Darkness bind them,
In the land of Redmond, where the Sales Reps lie.
