Just installed windows clean using the correct SATA NForce4 Drivers for my Gigabyte HDD and notice that near the System Tray.

The HDD is showing as a "Safely Remove Hardware" item ! How can it be when its internal and fixed.

This is a internal HDD can someone please tell me if this is ok to be showing as a removable device please.

don't think unplugging a SATA HDD would be wise while being switched on, just imagine frying the drive or something.
