You can't, it is a virtual bios without options.

Thanks for the very quick reply.

I was asking because I wanted to see if it is possible to simulate A RAID configuration

Is it possible by the way to do that :oops:

Cheers

You can't simulate H/W RAID. You can configure S/W RAID though standard OS drivers.

VBoxManage modifyvm 'name of virtual machine' --bioslogodisplaytime 10000

the display time is in milliseconds

That's not the question, nor the answer. VB does not provide a BIOS like your system does.
