Remove local (boot) disk from device eject menu?

I upgraded my sister's computer from Vista to 7, and now her boot disk shows up as an ejectable drive. how do I fix this, as I'm pretty sure Windows will become unstable if she accidentally ejects the boot drive

Don't worry. You would not be able to eject the system disk.

I don't think you can remove it - at least not easily.

somewhere it must be getting marked as "hot-swappable" I'll check the BIOS, but is there a switch in regedit?

You might be able to get it out when you uncheck the buffering (write caching) - in Device manager, Device properties > Policies. It is worth a try. But that may slow down the system a bit.
