How can I change my SATA control to AHCI and my HPET mode to 64 bit?

My laptop is HP pavilion dv9750ej running Windows 7 32-bit.

 

I have the latest BIOS version F.5A, and I would like to change my SATA settings to AHCI. When I access my BIOS I have no option to make this change. How can I do it?

 

If it is also possible, I would like to change my HPET mode to 64-bit.

 

Thank you

Hi:

 

There is no option in the BIOS to change the setting to ACHI. ACHI is enabled by default.

 

You can read this link about HPET. From reading this, apparently it makes no difference whether you change it or not.

 

And certainly if there is no BIOS setting to change, then like the ACHI setting, it can't be done.
