The long display of post code 94 means that the system is looking for the input devices and having troubles. Borrow a friends keyboard and mouse and see if the issue goes away. I'd bet that it does! (Intel tried to replicate your system, but it seems Sharkoon doesn't even sell PS2 mice anymore and is big in Europe only). remember don't shoot the messenger.
come on. these are not old devices (keyboad bought one year ago, the mouse bought 2 months ago!)
all (or most) USB mices come with PS/2 adapters! this sharkoon as well (usb->ps/2).
both (keyboard AND mice) didn't have a single problem on my old board.
AND why does it not hang if I have the "automatic drive configuration" enabled? if there would be a delay to detect ps/2 devices, then it would always have this delay. but it doesn't! this really is a bug in their bios. trust me. something is fucked up when having the automatic drive config disabled.
