Sabrent 2TB NVMe causes several minute delay to POST on HP OMEN 15-en0000

HP Recommended

I have both a Sabrent SB-ROCKET-2TB and a Sabrent SB-ROCKET-1TB NVMe drive for my HP Omen 2020 Laptop.


Both these drives were used without issue in a desktop until I got this laptop about a week or two ago.


To try and keep this as simple as possible, with the SB-ROCKET-1TB installed the Laptop works exactly as you would expect.


However, if i replace the SB-ROCKET-1TB with the SB-ROCKET-2TB or add the SB-ROCKET-2TB as a second drive the laptop, it will wait for upwards of 2-3 minutes at POST but ONLY AFTER A RESTART of the laptop from within Windows as an example and NEVER from a powered off state.


Powering up the laptop from power off sees the system load perfectly every time with the 2TB installed.


To rule out Windows or any other configuration issues, i removed the SB-ROCKET-1TB, created an Ubuntu Live USB, booted from that into Ubuntu Live and then restarted from within Ubuntu and the issue still happens where it sits at POST for a long time with the 2TB installed. Meaning the 2TB isnt even used, its only installed and yet it still happens.


Power Off/On the laptop and it starts to load immeditely. I have the latest available firmware installed - version 13A.


Can you advise?
