Ticket #3920 (closed enhancement: fixed)

The emulated SATA controller should report its port(s) as non-hot-pluggable, or make it user-configurable for each port => fixed in svn

Description

I'm using a Windows Fundamentals for Legacy PCs (WinFLP) guest (which is a slightly cut-down version of Windows XP). I installed the Intel AHCI driver version 8.8.1009 and configured the emulated hard disk to be connected to the SATA controller. Everything works okay.

However, a "Safely Remove Hardware" icon is now in the system tray. It is of course not possible to remove the emulated hard disk. Is it possible to have the emulated SATA controller report attached hard drives as non-removable/hot-pluggable? Then the useless system tray icon should not appear. Or better, make the behaviour user-configurable for each SATA port. Perhaps in future VirtualBox can support hot-plugging disk images on the guest SATA controller?

Thanks for the report. This will be fixed in the next maintenance release.
