AHCI Hide disk removable option

So i changed my sata harddrives from IDE Mode to AHCI, trying to gain some performance, seems it really doesn't make that much difference at least i can't see the difference in the benchmarks.

So which one is best to use?

Btw in AHCI mode i get an option to remove the harddrives safely, but i really don't want them in that list, is it possible to hide them?
don't want to accidentally remove the windows hardrive.
