Yes, that would make more sense.
Are the disks in question spun up by the BIOS, or by
I would have assumed BIOS spins all the disks up it detects before starting
I am not exactly keeping up with modern BIOS trends though (it is UEFI
boot), so I could be wrong here. The disks containing the btrfs partitions
are not used for booting, and are not used for / either.
Is it always the same disk, or a different disk each
Same disk, which isn't terribly surprising - I only have one btrfs. It is
RAID1, however I refer to /dev/sdb1 in /etc/fstab - which should
automatically bring in /dev/sdc1 if my understanding is correct.
I am very doubtful it is btrfs' fault, it seems very odd regardless that I
only encountered hard failures after converting to btrfs.
