PCIe SATA card pauses boot for minutes

Ever since I mounted a PCIe card with 6 SATA ports (2-3 in use) with ASMedia chip ASM1166, booting of my Linux installation stops at this stage:

It then proceeds after anywhere between 5-10 minutes.

This has been happening since I installed the card about a year ago, and apart from that, there are no issues.
It also does not happen every time - only at about 50-75% of boots.

Re: PCIe SATA card pauses boot for minutes

Are kernel and initramfs on a disk attached to that card?

See https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Genera … l_messages
And then please post your complete system journal for the boot:

sudo journalctl -b | curl -F 'f:1=<-' ix.io

No. /boot and / is on NVMe attached directly to the motherboard.

Command returns empty output.

Annoyingly, last few reboots have been without the pause. Will report back when I get a pause log.

Re: PCIe SATA card pauses boot for minutes

You can access an earlier boot that had the pause, eg " … -b -5" for 5 boots ago.
