Well.... According to this thread on the Microsoft Answers forum, it's normal. I have it on my computer as well now, I didn't think much of it though. I know there is a way to hide certain drives from the 'Safely Remove' list, but if I remember correctly, it requires altering information in the registry..

Edit: Wikipedia has a much better description of why AHCI mode shows up SATA drives in that list (link here).

Its perfecly normal since one of the features of AHCI is hot plug of the HD drives in case you want to plug in or out and e-sata HD without restarting your system. If you do not want to see the HDs in the "safely remove hardware & enject media" then you can install Intel® Matrix Storage Console and it will go away.!

Hello ZaLiTH.

I've been wanting to do this and I have now, thanks!

This is a 80GB X25M G2, it started at 7.5 but went to 7.4 after being used for a while, I enabled AHCI today and the score went to 7.7
