In BIOS - Is your drive controller enabled as AHCI? This allows SATA drives to be hot swap - removable. You and I can both search SevenForums for a reg hack to remove the two drives from the Safely Remove Hardware (SRH) icon list. I think there is a registry setting.
I'm a bit tired tonight, but I think you can change the BIOS setting to IDE without ill effect (not true for changing IDE to AHCI, but I think AHCI to IDE is OK).
Somebody stop me if I am wrong.
