    Boot Delay With D865PERL After HD Replacement


      I just replaced my SATA I hard drive, in my D865PERLbased system, with a SATA II model (Western Digital Caviar Black 640 GBs).  There is now a ten second pause (a dark, blank screen) between the POST and the Windows XP splash screen when booting up.  In the BIOS setup I have my ATA/IDE configuration set for "Enhanced", since I have a PATA optical drive.  The SATA drive is set as the only boot device.  I don't mind waiting the extra ten seconds I'm just wondering if it's a symptom of another problem. What could be causing this delay?  I am using the latest BIOS for this motherboard (P21). Any help is greatly appreciated.
