How to remove safely remove device?

I have a laptop HP PAVILION tx2550er. After installing AMD AHCI driver in the system tray shows the Safely Remove Hardware icon (my hard drive). How to remove (not hide!) the icon?

I'm sorry for the mistakes, I'm from Russia, the text was written with the help of an Google Translate.

identify your drive and see if you can try a different AHCI driver , if its an Intel you can try the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology driver ?

This is a joke? I wrote above, I have the AMD chipset.

sorry my bad but the key to this is your AHCI driver or you can do a registry hack to remove the notifier.

Is there anything in your Bios settings about enabling or disabling "Hot Boot". On my system it is on the SATA configuration page.
