When CarPC JoyCon Exr is connected to D525MW(intel mini ITX mainboard) with USB hub, BIOS screen is paused about 5 second in booting. It happens when CarPC JoyCon Exr is connected with USB hub.
There is three solution for this trouble.

1. Connect CarPC JoyCon Exr without USB hub(or USB repeater)
This is the best solution. The USB cable can be extended as long as 5m without hub. (USB repeater is 1 port USB hub. So USB repeater and USB hub have the same trouble.)
Connect CarPC JoyCon Exr to the USB port on the mainboard directly.

2. Disable Boot Device

You can disable CarPC JoyCon Exr as Boot Device. “Boot Device” means that the device can be use in the BIOS screen or muti OS selection screen before the OS is launched.
After you disable CarPC JoyCon Exr as Boot Device, you can not use CarPC JoyCon Exr in the BIOS Screen or muti OS selection screen. But if you don’t use muti OS, there will be no problem.
You can diable CarPC JoyCon Exr as Boot Device by checking off the “Enable Boot Device” option in the MISC tab of JoyCon Explorer. After the “Enable Boot Device” option is changed, rebooting or USB reconnection is required.
*CarPC JoyCon Exr firmware is required later than CPJexr_111031 version to use this option. You can update the firmware at FW tab by internet.
*JoyCon Explorer is required later than 111031 version to use this option. You can download the latest JoyCon Explorer at www.rcjoycon.com (http://www.rcjoycon.com/).

3. Use USB 1.0 hub
If CarPC JoyCon Exr is connected with USB 1.0 hub, there is no boot trouble. There is no pausing in BIOS screen, you can also use CarPC JoyCon Exr in BIOS screen and multi OS selection screen.
But it will be hard to purchase old USB 1.0 hub.

USB 2.0 hub with no boot trouble with D525MW is not known yet.
If you find one, please let me know.

Super awesome write-up! Thanks for that.I have had issues with mine causing lag on startup for a year now. My Asus B202 net-top sits forever at the bios screen before continueing system restore. Thanks, I will try this.

I've got my joycon EXr plugged into the motherboard (no hubs), the boot device option wasn't ticked and it still takes forever for the computer to boot...... is there any other fixes? Because as much as I like steering wheel controls, waiting for the computer to start is ****.

Hello Dahlia

Is your motherboard D525MW right?
Even with the USB hub at the D525MW the bios do not stop forever, only it only pause 5 second.

Did you updated the firmware of JoyCon Exr to the latest version?

Thank you

My motherboard is a MSI H61M-P21 (B3)
Yeah I updated the firmware too.

If I remove the USB, the computer boots very quick, if i plug the usb in after the boot, joycon works fine.
If I have it plugged in during boot, it takes 5 mins to turn on.

Thanks for replying to the thread btw :)

I will test JoyCon with the the mainboard about the trouble as soom as possible.

It seems that H61M-P21 (B3) is discontinued, so I will test MSI H61M-P23 (B3).

Thank you very much for your report about the trouble.

Thank you for reply so quickly (great service)! Thanks for taking the time to look into the problem I'm having. Hopefully it doesn't take too long, I can't wait to use the joycon fulltime. :)
