ENABLE ADVANCE OPTIONS IN BIOS

HP Recommended
HP PAVILLION DV7T 6000 NOTEBOOK
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I have HP PAVILLION DV7T 6000 NOTEBOOK. Recently its original SATA IDE hard disk crashed. I got a new SSD and am trying to install Win7 again on the SSD. However while installing it is giving me error that "Windows cannot be installed on this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu"

However when I go to BIOS menu, there is no option to change the controller from IDE to AHCI. I guess HP has locked the advanced BIOS settings. Any help to enable the advance BIOS option will be appreciated.

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.
