Disabling Hardware Detection Wizard Server 2003

We have several snapshot scsi drives mapped to an exchange server.  When we reboot the server we always get the Hardware Detection Wizard popping up telling us that our scsi drives are new.  Is there a way to disable the wizard via a registry tweak or disabling pnp services?  I know this was an issue with 2000, but wasn't sure if it was addressed in 2003.

Thanks for the help,

Also if you have norton anti-virus ,temporarily disable it to see if that would help
If you have norton add-in , remove it too to see if that solves the issue
