@ hackerdefo: tried the nobootwait option and didn't worked quite well. if the drive is present it doesn't automount any more. If the drive is off the booting sequence gets interrupted with errors. Back to nofail untill I find anything better.
Hi Snap,
I forgot to mention in my previous post that this "nobootwait" option won't work in VSIDO or anyother Debian based distro by default as the Debian package-maintainers (util-linux team) for the package "mount" are not interested in implementing this. Ubuntu and a few other distros include the patch that enables the "nobootwait" option.
Cheers!!!

Honestly I don't know! Simplest way to determine if the "mount" installed on your sysem has "nobootwait" option is to run,
Code: [Select]
man fstabAnd look for the following line,

...``nobootwait'' which can be applied to...
I think Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04, 15.10 have this but 16.04 doesn't.
