W 7 HD shows as a removable drive (SOLVED)
« on: June 20, 2016, 07:07:31 am »
W 7 SP1 Desktop
Today my HD shows as a removable drive ! A single 500Gb with partitions. It also appears in Devices & Printers. And I haven't touched anything. Appears to be working ok. Thoughts?

Futher research:
 http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/my-internal-sata-device-appears-in-devices-and/722221d6-d59c-4cf7-803c-8203e6344b93

Solved this oddness by changing AHCI to SATA in the bios.

Please , make it solved in the first post, by selecting modify  and then add (solved) to the left of the original subject title so that others would know that it is solved
The Bottom line is "Check your hardware first if it supports the task you try".

That would only work if either of us had contributed to the thread so they could see it, but I'll add (SOLVED) to the thread.
