Hello all, yesterday i finished my first ever AMD build and i have been building systems for over 25 years.
But there is one thing that's getting on my nerves is that 4 of my drives are showing as remove-able external drives.
This board has 8 SATA ports, 4 ports are on ASMedia ASM1061 controller and these are the drives showing as removeable.
From Asrock specs page: 4 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s Connectors by ASMedia ASM1061, support NCQ, AHCI and Hot Plug

Is there anyway to turn off hot plug? I looked through bios thoroughly but didn't find any option to turn off hot plug. I tried doing the windows registry trick but that didn't work either. I would be glad if someone can help me fix this.

It just shows Standard SATA AHCI Controller for me that doesn't have any option to turn on/off hotplug. Maybe that's the issue. I have checked my mobo download page and have installed everything, ASMedia driver is not available anywhere.
Maybe that is the reason, driver for my specific device is not installed. Just a generic one is installed in its place.
