Yes you can. There should be an option called fast boot or similar in the bios. If this is disabled it will do a full memory check and allow the hard drives to spin up to speed.

If you post the model of your AS rock board some one should be able to point you in the direction of the setting.

It maybe that you have not quite got the settings quite right for your hard drives and this could be why the drives are not being detected fast enough.

The option setting for quick boot mode seems to be the same for SIS and VIA chipsets for the K7. It is under BOOT in the bios.click here
