SATA drives hot swapable?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So I got this thing from a friend:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371028

and I want to start using it. However, are SATA drives hot swappable? If they were I'd assume there would be some sort of "safely remove" or "eject" option available, which I do not see.

If you go into device manager->Disk drives->Right-click properties->Policies, I think you can enable/disable quick removal.

As long as you have the drive setup as AHCI in the bios you should be ok

Right, AHCI is the key here I believe.

AHCI set in bios, and preferably a hot-swap mount and it'll work fine.

set AHCI mode first in windows regedit
hkey_local_machine\\system\\currentcontrolset\\ser vices\\msahci

change start to 0 default is 3 to enable AHCI

restart comp and set AHCI in bios
save bios
hopefully this works
