FIX: AHCI/SATA drives showing in "Safely Remove Hardware" - Page 6

post #51 of 56
Thread Starter 
HITTI,

This post was written so long ago, and I do admit that in my case I did not have UEFI, nor RAID in my setup when I wrote this.

This "fix" was for Windows 7 registry, and how Internal HDDs would show up in the "Safely Remove Hardware..." thingie.

I am surprised that this post keeps getting woken up occasionally, and I am glad that it helps. Unfortunately, this fix is not a "be all- end all" fix.
This is just something that worked for me, in my situation, and that I hoped I could share.

Backup your registry!

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\storahci\Parameters\Device
  • Add a new "Multi String Value" called "TreatAsInternalPort" (no quotes).
  • Modify the new entry by adding 0 (press return), 1 (return), 2,3,4,5 (add one more return) this would be for a 6 sata port motherboard)). You should have something that looks like this: http://i.stack.imgur.com/jdPUV.png
  • Exit and reboot, (you may get an error that flashes up while it shuts down, don't panic it only seems to be the once.)

I guess you could edit this "TreatAsInternalPort" entry to exclude any ports you may want to eject in the future.
It's been a while since I posted here.
Thanks a lot for this tip, it fixed my problem. smile.gif
There should be a link to your post in OP.

Hi there,

i had the same problem and this solution worked for me.
I would like to mention that when you choose DWORD, choose the 32bit variant.
The 64bit option didn't do a thing for me.

Windows 7 Ultimate,
SSD: M4 CT064M4SSD2
MB: Gigabyte GA-P55-UD4 with BIOS version F9

bye

That worked perfect. Thank you!
