    I just did a clean install on my computer and the Intel SSD is showing up as a USB removable device. It has a ASRock H67M motherboard. I went to their website and installed the latest drivers, but it did not help. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Yes, as LatinMCG said, you should install the IRST software.

    SSDs are SATA devices - all of which normally support the hot-swap and hot-plug standards that are part and parcel of SATA; it even applies to platter SATA drives. (In other words, it's NOT a bug.)

    Is the SATA mode set to AHCI or RAID?

    I have the same thing happen on my older desktop with weird handling of AHCI (it basically uses a separate OpROM for it instead of having native BIOS support). Never really bothered to try fixing it since it didn't cause any issues, but the SATA mode selection in BIOS/firmware settings is where I'd first go.

    Thanks everyone fori the reply. I installed IRST but it did not solve the problem. I also looked through the BIOS but do not have a setting to disable sata hotplug.

    A few months back I read a thread about the same problem. He was able to fix it through the registry. I can't seem to find it now.

    Yes, the OS on a single MBR partition.

    It is possible, murphy78's diskpart and image apply script offers that option also.
