Just googling around I've found people with the grub fd0 error
complaining about there being a significant delay, so it would be nice
as the other poster suggested to eliminate the floppy as a possibility
by disabling it. Why the floppy probing error didn't cause a noticeable
delay from the very beginning might just be one of those intractable
mysteries the resolution of which nobody really cares about in the end.
