Hi there I am planning to replace the HDD in my Sony Vaio VGN-NW240F laptop with a SSD that i have bought. Having read a few articles, I see that the I have to change BIOS SATA connection setting to AHCI.

But in the Sony laptop that i have, there is no option for SATA Connection as it is Aptio Setup utlity.

Any ideas on how I go about setting the SATA connection?.

Or can I still go ahead and connect my SSD and install Windows 7?.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You do not need to change the setting just go ahead and install Windows 7 on the SSD drive.

But which one of these laptops is yours? Sony Vaio

Thanks for that. Had a look at the manual very little about the BIOS in there so cannot see where,if any the settings for ACHI would be. As I said it really does not matter.
