    Hello. I have a Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard x64 Edition - SP2
    in a Computer that has a IDE disk with the Operating System and 8 SATAII
    disks as individual units (that is to say, they are'nt in RAID).

    The problem is that it does not appear the "Secure Release Hardware" icon
    for the SATAII disks (the SATAII are Hot Swap). How I can release the disk in
    hot? or it's that Windows 2003 not support hot swap?

    Motherboard DFI ICFX3200-T2R/G. CPU Core 2 Duo E6700. Memory: 2Gb.
    Disk SATA II Seagate Barracuda ST3750640AS

    That is a feature of the respective drive controller and
    chip. On my MSI K8T800Pro the drives must be installed with
    the controller set to "SATA" in the BIOS for this feature.
    If the BIOS is set to "RAID" the Hot Swap feature isn't there.

    You need to contact DFI Tech support get more definitive

  3. Theo is correct about the place for the fix for this. The issue is whether
    the disks report themselves to the OS as "removeable".
