Question HDD Makes POST Take Longer...

Hello,
My two HDD's (Western Digital Black 6 TB 256 MB Cache) drives take about 5 seconds to POST. They are plugged in via SATA 3 on my Asus ROG Strix Z370 motherboard, and I was just wondering if there is a way to delay the spin up of the drives until the OS starts as they are secondary drives and I boot from my Samsung 970 Pro.

Thanks in advance.

no
thats stupid
it takes a lil longer cause the system needs to recognize and allocate them.
check if theyre fine while booting, to either give windows the ok to boot, or give the boot screen an error.
