I have 6 hard disks in my computer and one DVD. The disk that I connect to the 6th SATA port is a regular disk. But my Windows 7 64 bit shows it as a removable drive. I can eject my hard disk! Just like a pen drive. If I connect another disk to the 6th port, I can eject that disk too. So it has nothing to do with the physical disk, it must be something related to Windows or BIOS
I don't understand why Windows 7 is seeing a normal hard disk as removable. In Computer Management - Disk Management, the disk looks identical to the others - there is nothing there to suggest the drive is different from the others. But in the tray I have the icon to eject it.
The motherboard model is ASUS F2A85 V PRO FM2 and it has 7 SATA ports. All the disks are formatted normally, no Dynamic Disk, no RAID, nothing special.
How can I tell Windows 7 to treat the disk exactly like the others, so it can't be ejected?
