"jmb36x ide setup" Can I remove from Boot??

OS is Windows 7 x64 bit and I do not use RAID, I simply have 3 SATA magnetic Hard Drives my main boot drive is a 128 GB SSD iaStor Drive.

Motherboard is Gigabyte model GA-EP45-UD3P rev 1.1

"jmb36x ide setup" loads with start-up, is this necessary or would not loading it cause a very serious issue or failure with my computer?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1, Windows 8.1 Pro x64, Windows 10 Pro x64

The jmb36x (GIGABYTE SATA2, really JMicron) chip also controls the IDE channels

"1 x IDE connector supporting ATA-133/100/66/33 and up to 2 IDE devices"

I would not disable it.
