Windows 7: Sata connected devices show in "safely remove hardware" USB thingy

Sata connected devices show in "safely remove hardware" USB thingy

Hiya, in my old PC i had the problem where my internal drives showed up in the USB remove thingy in the Notification Area. When i rebuilt, with the BIOS set to AHCI instead of IDE that stopped.

That PC has died and now i have a new one (installing right now). The problem appears with this one on a fresh install of Windows, and after SP1 and after the various drivers are installed. BIOS (UEFI) says my drives are AHCI so i don't know why this is happening.

I really dislike it - can i stop it and how?

Thanks.

new Mobo is ASRock Extreme6

** EDIT **

Very sorry! I missed a driver during my installs. All good once i put that one extra driver in.
