Windows 7: Adding HDD with data leads to pause on Starting Windows page?

I think the BIOS delay is pretty normal. The BIOS checks all devices to make sure that they are operational - that takes some time if you have a lot of devices. My BIOS phase on this system (a Dell 530) is longer than the Win7 boot time - go figure. I noticed that only after I installed the OCZ Vertex. Maybe that is the culprit.
