Sata emulation- AHCI option not available

HP Recommended
HP Compaq dc7800
I am trying to format my pc but I am not getting AHCI option in storage options.
Options available-
Removable media boot - enable/ disable
Legacy diskette write -. Enable / disable
Sata emulation- IDE/RAID

There is no option like AHCI in sata emulation and it is required for installation of new windows.

Please help me in that
Thank you

The best setting to use is RAID.


RAID enables the use of Native Command Queuing.  IDE does not.


There is no AHCI option.


I have a dc7800, and I am running W10 Pro 64 bit on it.


I decided to install a solid state drive (SSD), and I was concerned that there would be no TRIM support, but W10 automatically trims the drive, or I can manually trim it myself at any time using the 'Defragment and optimize drives' utility found under the Windows administrative tools programs section.
