    Thanks for posting that! I'm guessing that at some point, a device driver wrote that info to your registry. I have no such values on the two machines I just checked for this (one with no card reader, another with card reader built into the AIO screen frame).
    Thanks again,

    I had the same problem but only had one drive. I found this in another forum and decided to save it.

    If Kbird's solution does not work try navigating to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\storahci\Parameters\Device in the registry. Once you are on the Device Key, In the right hand plane, right click and create a new Multi-String Value Name the new value TreatAsInternalPort Double click the new value to edit it. In the Value Data section, start with 0 then 1 2 3 depending on how many ports you have. The trick here is they must be numbered vertically. The value data section will look like this:

    0
    1
    2
    3

    The example will work for four ports.

    I have not tried this myself but the person who posted it said it worked.

    Thanks it worked for me
    In the value section after 0 press Enter key and add rest digits simultaneously and then restart

    Fantastic. Worked a treat. Thank you.

    Now I just have to sort out the Marvell 91xx controller.


    Update: I add the Bus No for the Marvell 91xx to the list and that solved that problem too.
    Bonus points to TrustMe.
    I am trying to make my Marvell Controller treated an internal.

    I already have this.

    I hope this works for Windows 7. It doesn't reveal the hard drive ports.

    That's usually fixed by using the correct Marvel Driver, not the generic thing that Windows seems to like installing.

    See this post Marvell 91xx Config Missing Driver - Windows 10 Forums It's what I used to fix both the Drive and the Controller being removable.
    marvell controllers in the past have been known to be very problematic.
