Speaking of audio, I have a Creative Soundblaster Omni 5.1 USB.
With it plugged into any USB (tested them all), the boot will take quite a lot longer and sometimes while trying to enter BIOS I will get a black screen.
When I get the black screen and I just unplug the sound card, the BIOS will load instantly. But if I do not unplug it, it will never load without a power reset (and even then, it is random).
