SSD - BIOS SATA Setting

Likes # 0

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.

thanks

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.

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
