Sata emulation- AHCI option not available

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

Sata emulation- AHCI option not available

Hi:

 

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.
