Compaq Presario CQ71-430ER does not see the new SSD

Compaq Presario CQ71-430ER

My HDD is dead. It was decided to change it to SSD Smartby Revival 3. After installation, Bios did not see this disk. I wanted to change the mode in the BIOS to ACHI. And also enable SATA, but such settings are not available in my BIOS. I know what you are saying that you need to prepare the SSD, but the problem is that another computer sees this SSD. Please tell me, I beg you, how to get to the advanced settings?

Sorry, but apart from business notebooks and some high-end gaming PCs, accessing Advanced BIOS option on HP PCs is not possible.

Some OEMs lock out the advanced BIOS options to prevent customers from making changes to options that can destabilize or otherwise damage the PC -- and then send it back for repair under warranty claiming they did nothing to it.

I know only SOME of the advanced options are risky, but it's simpler to disable access to ALL advanced options than to allow/disallow on an individual option basis.

That's the course of action that HP has chosen. No one from here is going to provide you any means of getting around that.
