Hello I am new to this site, I have been reading some advice people have given to others queries and problems. I a problem of my own, I have 2 IDE hdd at the moment and I am currently installing a SATA hdd, not as the os but as storage for downloads. I am trying to change my hdd around as I have currently in my pc two IDE hdd a 120gb os and 250gb slave. I am trying to install 500gb SATA as storage,I have formatted the new drive, partitioned it also,I have started copying files over from slave hdd. The new SATA drive is showing as a healthy and active drive in device management. Yet my computer is acting like its a removable drive, ie it is has the icon in bottom left corner to say safely remove hardware. Now obviuosly i don't want to remove the hdd as I want it as an internal drive. So does anyone know how to sort this out so that it is not asking me if I would like to remove the drive thanks Adam.
