    I have
    Athlon X2 4200+
    ASUS A8N-E
    1GB and Win XP SP2
    160GB Sata2 Hdd.----> SATA-1
    80 GB Pata Hdd.--->Primary Master

    I install the drivers accompained with the motherboard CD.
    Now the Windows shows all the partitions as Safely removeable device.

    Please help to disable this.

    that is not a problem with ur windows....

    it is general... the windows recognizes the SATA contriller of A8N-E (And many others...) as removable...
    but u wont be able to remove it obviously because ur OS is running... so no problem...

    this is usual... and shows in mine too....

    not only mine but everyone else'

    If ur OS is on the PATA one u can disconnect the SATA drive even when PC is on.

    I forgot to mention.

    I have installed the Windows XP in New SATA-2 160 GB Hdd.
    And the Windows partition and other three partitions of the same Hdd are shown as Safely removable drives!!!

    Thanks.........
    I understood the problem.....
