Perhaps it's just the presence of other disks that causes the issue -- it could be that enumerating them is causing a delay while they power up or that something is scanning their partition tables looking for RAID flags or whatever.

Just one more question.
On some mainboards the kernel is loaded from the USB hdd/flash at 1.1 instead of 2 or 3. That means loading 35.5 MB with about 800 KB/s >> I have to wait another 45 sec.
Is there any way to speed it up? For example to somehow load the USB 2 driver before loading the kernel...

I'd guess it is a bios setting for usb 1 or 2. Three is different and should boot to 3 if a 3 usb is in it.

Yes, there is a setting like that in Bios, but this is not the cause. The chipset of those mainboards natively works on 1.1 until the USB 2/3 driver from the OS switches it to 2/3.
My mainboard is like that: in Windows and Linux I can use USB 2, outside them it's 1.1.
I tried to update the Bios, no change...
