SiL3132 problem at boot & sata under removeable devices..

HDA Xplosion DTS Connect Gold Plated Audio Card.

All Seagate Barracuda's. All S-ATA.
Expansion card for two more S-ATA connections.
ASUS DVD-RW DL S-ATA burner.
19" Samsung Syncmaster 957p CRT (LCD my arse.) monitor.
Chill Innovation 550 Watt PSU (Needs upgrading, really.)
Zalman cooling for CPU and chipset. (Passive cooling for the chipset, yes really - on this motherboard - too.)
Silent Eagle 80MM 8,9 DB fan in front cooling HDD's and creating airflow.
One HDD mounted in Chill Innovation anti vibration noise kit for 5" bay slot.
1 x 120 mm fan in the PSU.
1 x 120 mm Coolermaster fan in the rear of the chassis.
My problem is this; I'm not using the RAID connections for S-ATA, **** I don't even think you CAN use them on this particular mobo. So they're disabled.
As is the Sil controller in BIOS.
However, when I boot up I no longer get the long-arse "Press CTRL+S to enter RAID utility" but the boot is slowed to a crawl and just displays; "SIL 3132 something."
It stays on that text for quite some time. Then it boots up normally.
I really need a solution for it, as I've disabled everything I can think of in the BIOS.
Removable devices; for some reason the three drives I have on the SATA controllers show up as removable devices, and I don't want them to. Any way to resolve that issue?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
