Windows 10: Internal SSD shown in Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media
Internal SSD shown in Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media
I have a problem with two of my SSD's showing up as removable and non internal when they're mounted inside my PC. One has my operating system on it so I'm hesitant to remove that one, but the other one only has games on it so I can use that for testing purposes. Here's some of what I've tried based on scouring forums and the internet: Disabling write caching (on or off no change), disabling hotswap in the BIOS (they were already set to off), and trying to update my Intel Chipset (Intel doesn't support drivers or something for Windows 10, of course I had this same problem in Windows 7, and I did a clean install of 10).
I'm using IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers - Standard SATA AHCI Controller
I also tried installing the Intel Rapid Storage technology which didn't really do anything other that confirm that its only detecting the SSD's it considers "internal". I have since deleted it because it was useless.
If I go into the properties for my drive, the one that it thinks is external (oddly enough it also thinks it's internal as shown above) either in the Device Manager or where ever, it shows that there's a portable partition on it (its listed under Disk Drives and Portable Devices). When I go to the tab for Events under the portable one, it says Device install required and Device not migrated. I should also mention I have Samsung SSD's and I installed Samsung Magician, though I'm not 100% sure why other than it came with the drive. The issue may have started with that software because I don't remember the problem being present after the clean install.
I tried tackling this problem several months ago to no avail. Here's the previous post, peoples fixes and my results in each separate case.

My Hard Drive crapped the bed recently, it was 4 and a half years past warranty so it served more than its fair share of time :p But I grabbed a nice new Samsung 850 Evo SSD, reinstalled windows and all of my stuff (since the disk was in REALLY...
When I boot up my system it will normally scan once and that's it. A couple weeks ago I started getting a system sound when I logged into a game I play Black Desert Online and the sound would repeat itself exactly every 2 minutes. I tried a reboot...
Okay, a puzzler...
My taskbar shows that I can "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media". Funny...I don't have anything plugged in. Selecting the message tells me that I can "Eject Nvidia GTX 970". Wouldn't that be odd? It's the friggin' video...
