I was being sarcastic.
Hiding the problem is not solving the problem.

The problem is fixed. I reseat everything including the CPU and updated the BIOS to 1.18 and I can disable "hot swap" in the BIOS for all my drives and now I can read/write from a USB drive.

Glad you got it resolved...Finally

I will have to flip on the Gateway and see if there`s any option like that in it`s bios.

I just checked that link and found it useless to me. It tells me to do this and that but doesn't tell me how to this and that. Directions like the ones given in the link are a pet peeve of mine; geeks who assume people reading them already know far more than they may actually know.

Rant over. You are now being returned to your regularly scheduled thread.

There is some good info in that thread but that first post is not a universal fix.

You would need to have this reg key,

Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ services\ msahci
Installing IRST (Also mentioned in that thread) got rid of the safely remove on my non-Marvell controllers.

There is a different fix for Marvell controllers posted at the end that I plan on trying when I get around to it.

I would think every win 7 has that reg key as it is the default built in ahci driver. But of course it doesn't mean you are using it. As said in the thread IRST corrects the issue (at least newer versions) for the Intel SATA controller. If running old version you can simply uninstall it and enable msahci in registry, assuming you have AHCI as an option in BIOS.

Then it is mentioned that Marvel controllers have an option to disable safely remove option but it does so in the controller level and disable for all drives attached to it.

Unfortunately, I don't have a misbehaving drive. I used this to fix a friend's laptop 2 months ago.

I would try to create the keys under services-driver you use (AS SSD shows which one per drive) - may or may not work. Our typical motherboards only have 2 controllers, so either Controller0 or Controller1. Channel is easier because it is the SATA port that the drive is plugged in to, starting with 0.
