I have a laptop HP PAVILION tx2550er. After installing AHCI driver in the system tray shows the Safely Remove Hardware icon (my hard drive). How to remove (not hide!) the icon?

I'm sorry for the mistakes, I'm from Russia, the text was written with the help of an Google Translate.

The best you can do is look for a BIOS option to disable hot-plug for your AHCI controller.  Otherwise, you're stuck with the icon.  I wouldn't worry about accidentally "removing" your hard drive, though, since it will be in use and you won't be able to.

For Windows 7/Vista only:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci\Controller0]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci\Controller0\Channel0]
"TreatAsInternalPort"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci\Controller0\Channel1]
"TreatAsInternalPort"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci\Controller0\Channel2]
"TreatAsInternalPort"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci\Controller0\Channel3]
"TreatAsInternalPort"=dword:00000001

 

Make a text file with the above contents. Replace Controller/Channel numbers with the ones used by your SATA devices. You can find these in the device manager.

Save it as a .reg file (extension). Double click to apply the file.

Make sure you back up your registry befory trying it. Use at your own risk.

This is a laptop, not a PC, its BIOS there are no such option.

I installed the driver from AMD, not Microsoft. Your advice is useless.

This is a Windows issue...not a AMD issue. Check Microsoft's Windows forum...post your question there.  http://windows7forums.com/

Old mistake, always use drivers provided by your laptop manufacturer, not the chipset provider.

Another mistake: there's a laptop subforum for a reason. Use it.

You're welcome. Love you too.
