Yup, that is correct.. I've had to do much the same, but at least here we can be glad that MS finally
got Windows to show the volume label in the 'Safely Remove Hardware' list! Something that should've been included since XP as far as I'm concerned... You do get quite used to it though.

Just a thought, but I only just noticed your open post doesn't really mention any reasons or benefits for switching to AHCI.. Thinking about it now, I actually went to Google it and see what AHCI was and what was different to normal SATA when I first found this tutorial.
Perhaps to enhance it a little bit, at the start you could mention a brief description of the NCQ process (more info here
) that AHCI uses? Might also be an idea to mention that AHCI also enables hot swapping support for SATA devices.. Just some constructive criticism, hope you don't mind.
