How to set as IDE Mode?

HP Recommended
HP Compaq DC5700 Microtower
Microsoft Windows NT


So I don't see an option to change the Hard disk mode to IDE In the storage options menu. The computer thinks it's running as AHCI, but I don't know if i could change that. I updated the BIOS to 2.09 and nothing helped.

According to the dc5700 F10 setup guide at the link below, the default storage controller setting is IDE (under the SATA Emulation setting).


See page 6.
