Hi ov3rl0rd, ;)

Welcome to forum

In the page 51 on manual,
BIOS Section Integrated Peripherals
ICH SATA Control Mode (Intel ICH10R South Bridge)

AHCI Configures the SATA controllers to AHCI mode. Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) is an interface specification that allows the storage driver to enable advanced Serial ATA features such as Native Command Queuing and hot plug.


Maybe try this software for remove hot Swap device from windows:

Choose version 5.

Hi

Yes as Gloup_Gloup has already outlined you can disable the hot swap feature by disabling the full AHCI mode but that might not be suitable if you still want the performance etc. The only way to do exactly what you want is by hacking the registry.


Right Click the command prompt and select 'Run as Administrator';

Copy and paste the following command into the command prompt:
reg.exe add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\msahci\Controller(n)\Channel(N)" /f /v TreatAsInternalPort /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001

Change (n) for the contoller number – 0 on my machine ie. 'Controller0' and change Channel (N) for the SATA port number – 1 – 5 on my machine ie. Channel1, Channel2, channel3....etc
