Windows 7: BIOS POST configuration question

BIOS POST configuration question

Hello,
I have recently installed an internal card reader and started to notice
a slower boot time. After sitting next to my PC during POST I witnessed that it was
caused due to the BIOS going through each and every card slot (even when not occupied) and then it 'initializes' them.
It persists on doing this even after I removed them from the "Boot Sequence" list (they just keep getting added on back there by default).

My question is. Is there a way to skip all of the USB related tests and initialize them
once logging into OS?

(AMI BIOS, MSI MB, Windows 7)

Thank you!

you may be able to set the IRQ (interrupt request) to a higher number. that way the BIOS doesnt look at them until after its booted.
may work

How do I go about determining which are for the USB, without messing anything up?
