I like to prevent internal SATA hard drives to appear as removable in Windows 10 Pro (ver10.0.19546). From where I could change Hot-Swap settings on the TRX40 Creator bios (ver1.30 2020/1/8)?

I would not like to fork the Windows registry for this.

Probably via ESATA setting like in the TRX40 Taichi for each drive under
Advanced\Storage Configuration\Chipset SATA Configuration:

Unfortunately that setting only affects to the motherboard SATA header, that is it disabled, enabled or does it auto detect the drive.

Menu does not allow to select if connected drive is seen as hot-swappable or not.

In the bios of the Asrock Fatal1ty X370 PG there is/was a global SATA Hot Plug switch under Advanced\Storage Configuration.

And in the bios of the MSI Creator TRX40 you can set hot plug for each port:

Also my MSI X570 MEG Ace has these options.

I don't know why Asrock does not offer the same.

I would create a ticket with a change request...

Thanks, exactly those I tried to find but no luck. This was the closest I found, but TBH I have no idea what those means:

Hot Plug Handling mode:
AO Mode
OS First (No Error Handling)
OS First (Error Handling - Not Implemented)
Firmware First
Auto

Hmm, this you have to test.
But it is global.

Maybe it is a little bit hidden: Can you check on each connected drive in the storage menu, if there is an option popup?

That's the way of an Asrock X470 Taichi bios, i read in a german forum when searching "asrock trx40 hot plug".

None of those 'Advanced\AMD CBS\NBIO Common Options' options didn't prevent internal SATA hard drives to appear as removable. I don't even know if they're related in any way to SATA Hot Plug.

I can see drives in Storage Device(s) List, but there is no way to access them by mouse or keyboard.

I got an answer from the ASRock Technical Support Division:

Quote Dear ShK,

Thank you for choosing ASRock and contact us.

Today we have used TRX40 Creator to test, but we didn't sea the same behavior as you said.

We connect two SATA disk to the MB and boot into OS with default BIOS setting, the SATA devices doesn't appear in the Removable Hardware list.

For this case, we would suggest loading the BIOS to default setting by pressing [F9] and then press [F10] to save and exit to try.

Thank you,

Best wishes,

ASRock TSD


After pressing [F9] and then pressing [F10] to save and exit, my Crucial M4 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT512M4SSD2 still appears as removable drive on Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit.

btw, TRX40 Creator bios 1.30 beta has a bug, when you select "Discard Changes and Exit", bios will crash.

A little update. ASRock TSD asked me to test with the another brand internal SSD drive and I added all internal SSD drives which I could find. Then I did again that F9+F10 trick in BIOS and now all started to work as should. Any of installed internal drives does not anymore appear as removable drive! After I removed unneeded drives, original drive still works as it should and Windows 10 does not detect it anymore as removable drive. So all good now! Excellent!

ASRock engineer team has fixed now this "Discard Changes and Exit" issue from the BIOS. They also fixed another issue which I reported, "RGB LED On/Off" -option did show wrong status in the BIOS. So I can confirm that all of these are now fixed in the BIOS version L1.42 which ASRock TSD offered to me to test.
