Very frustrating I have uninstalled a seagate external hard drive as per prompts, it's says to re boot in order to successfully uninstall, after the computer re boots it tells me new hardware has been detected and re installs the seagate external hard drive am I missing something???

You usually Eject removeable devices; then when the machine says it's safe, you un-plug it.

Yes, but I want to completely remove it from my system, I'm trying to use a different HDD, I uninstall from disc management, reboot and it re installs from the re boot
