    USB device to allow for fast boot up?

    My computer setup only allows for normal boot time when a USB keyboard is attached to the front USB port on my computer, most likely because I have a USB > SATA connected to a hard drive. It takes somewhere around 2-3 minutes to get past the POST when the keyboard is not connected. Is there some way I can get around this without always having they keyboard connected? Maybe disable the ports? Plug in something else in it's place? Anybody else had this issue?

    Would plugging in one of these be out of the question?

    They're really small and you could just hide it somewhere.

    Just disable the detection/error in your bios.

    One of my older machines required me to have a keyboard (ps/2) installed in order to boot. I disabled it in the bios and now I have no problems booting without a keyboard installed

    I just ordered one of those full size roll up keyboards that would be good to throw in the glove box with the computer anyway, but I'd still like to be able to have it unplugged. If I have to I will leave it plugged in though.

    I've already done that, the boot is delayed once I plug in my hard drive.
