How do I enable AHCI on Compaq CQ60 100EM ?

CQ60 100EM
Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

Hello, I need to change SATA mode to AHCI in bios as I have installed a SSD drive. The original hard drive failed hence why I installed a SSD drive. 

 

When I run the SSD health utility, it is advising the SATA mode is currently set to IDE, and needs to be changed to AHCI.

 

Please can you advise how I unlock bios or how I change the SATA mode to AHCI from IDE on this model?

 

FYG, i have check the BIOS and there are limited features available.. Most other vendors allow this option to be changed, don't understand why it isn't available .

 

I look forward to your prompt reply and appropriate solution to resolve this matter.

Hi @unslog,

 

Thank you for your query.  I will do my best to help.

 

I understand that you would like to change the SATA mode to ACHI as you have installed a SSD. Here is a link to HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - About SATA Hard Drives and Controller Modes. Please review the section "Setting the controller mode in the BIOS".  Please let me know the outcome.
