I know this has literally no effect on the running of my pc, but I can't figure it out for the life of me and would like to see if anyone here knows the solution
 
I have 2 monitors connected to my 3090 with DP cables. No matter what order these cables are in, the bios shows up on my second monitor when starting my PC. I tried scouring the internet to find if there was a solution to my "problem", but only could find some outdated videos, articles, and an evga faq related to the 900 series port priority.
 
Anyone with thoughts on this?

    This is the 3080 port priority according to Jacob, which I would assume the 3090 is identical:

    That said with mine, if I disconnect everything EXCEPT the primary monitor, then reconnect the other displays, the display choice will persist through reboots until a cold boot cycle (poweroff).
     
    It's a less than ideal solution but it works until nvidia removes their heads from their behinds.

    silly question - does the port priority have any bearing on latency whatsoever?

    CPU: 9700k @4.8ghz
    GPU: 3080 XC3 Ultra
    PSU: Corsair RM850X
    RAM: 2x16gb G.Skill TridentZ
    SSD: Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB
    MOBO: Asus Z390-i

    My guess if it happens even following port priority is that the monitor that gets the bios screen is probably faster to wake up than the other. Check the monitors energy saving and sleep settings. Could be fixable that way if not the only workaround is probably manually turning monitor on and the other off until you get bios loading.

    Personally I would just use the bios on the alternative monitor and not care too much. If they're next to each other it's probably not worth turning off every features.
