    Hello. I want to change my SATA controller from AHCI to IDE, but the option is not in the BIOS because HP locked pretty much all the options. Can anyone do that for me or teach me how to do it?

    Here's my motherboard and BIOS info:

    (change xx to tt, I can't post links because I don't have 20 posts)

    This is my BIOS file: hxxp://mediafire.com/?mnj2a96wgv9h2hm (again, change xx to tt)
    I will be using Insydeflash to flash my BIOS. If more information is needed, tell me and I will provide it as soon as possible.

    There are some tools, but most of them are harder to find :(

    But why do you need to change from AHCI to IDE?? :confused:

    Because right now the software used to flash xbox 360 isnt detecting the dvd drive and I read that I must change it to IDE to make it work
