May I recommend the freeware HotSwap to solve the hot swap problem. I have
been using it under XP for the last couple of years and recently migrated to
W7 (with a build very close to you dream system) and found HotSwap still
works fine. Though my current W7 load throws a fit if I just switch off the
dock which it didn't do with XP. Probably need to update the BIOS... :)

Yup, works well for me. When I first got it, I could hot swap drives by
rescanning in Storage Manager. Some upgrade or 
other appears to have killed that, so I do have to reboot anytime I plug in
or turn on ANY eSATA drive or swap drives in 
the BlacX. Might or might not be particular to my hardware, though.
