Hi OCIR,
Yes it is normal, and it shows you that you have the ability to hotplug your SATA drive
I hope this helps

That is a setting that allows you to remove or change SATA drives without switching off the PC
and your disk showing up in the menu just shows you that you can take advantage this option.
For example if you were to use IDE instead of AHCI for your SATA HDD (BIOS settings) this option would not show up anymore.
