    Looking for a way to show IHC9 Iastore.sys SATA drive as Removable.

    Brcobrem

      Hi,

       

      Anyone know of a way to make IHC9 / iastore.sys SATA drives show up in the Windows 7 "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" as a Removable drive?

       

      This feature is available if one selects AHCI in the BIOS, and uses the default Windows 7 Microsoft AHCI driver (ie. msachi.sys). I'd like to have that feature using the iastore.sys driver.

       

      I appreciate your thoughts and comments.

       

      Regards,

      Brcobrem

       

       

      P.S. This is a typical iastore.sys reg setup:
