A1200 slow down at startup

Well i just noticed that getting the early startup screen, without hd gets time on appearing the purple screen asking for a disk. Also, with hd it takes his time into booting. Usually on the second reset the hd boot up speedy. I don´t think that is power hungry symptom because i'm using a at power supply for the hd and cd.
Is this normal on a a1200?. My rev is a 1d4.

If you have 3.1 roms it's normal

Without a HD connected it can take up to 30 sec before the Insert disk animation appears

The V3.0 ROMS would not always wait for some slow HDs to spin up.
The V3.1 ROMS waited longer. On a soft reset the HD has already spun up and is recognised
immediately....

Ok, guys, thanks for the answers!!!.
Antoher question: why certain hds needs a second reboot to spin up, and others do it at first?.
