    The way a file is stored on a SSD is completely different than the way files are stored on standard HDDs, you can't compare them to each other. The location of a file on a SSD makes no difference at all. Actually, due to an operation that happens on all SSDs, called Wear Leveling, files will be moved to different locations from time to time. That is done so the NAND chips in a SSD are used as evenly as possible, so some won't wear out before others. I highly doubt that changing the SATA mode caused the page file to be moved.

    IMO, when the manual was written, Windows 7 did not exist. I doubt that hot plugging, which is a feature of AHCI, is not supported by Windows 7 on the ICH9.

    Controlling hot plugging is done in the BIOS, or in Device Manager. If you cannot control it (enable or disable) with Device Manager, the only other place is the BIOS. If the BIOS does not have that ability, then there is nothing else you can do.

    The only other thing you can try is using a different AHCI driver from Intel, instead of the Windows 7 driver. The main problem is with an older board with a BIOS that does allow controlling Hot Plugging.

    It really will not hurt anything having the drives as removable, just don't click on that.

    My win7 SP1 (fully updated) Gigabyte P35-DS3L (rev: 1.0) fully supports hot swapping with ICH7.
    My device manager says that I'm using Intel(R) G33/G31/P35/P31 Express Chipset PCI Express Root Port 1 - 29C1
    and has 5 additional ICH9 entries in System Devices.

    Hope this helps somewhat.
