    Hi, guys, I need to disable ahci support on sony vaio vpc-f115 notebook.

    There isn´t any option on bios.

    Could this bios get modded to add any kind of advanced options in bios?

    Thats the bios link: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VPCF115FM&upd_id=5818&os_group_id=6
    It's an AMI efi bios.

    I just decompiled exe with uniextract, not really sure what spare files would be needed to take a look.

    Thanks for reading :)

    Look under Chipset -> South Bridge Configuration -> SATA Configuration -> SATA Mode Selection

    Bios doesnt have any option besides boot order, clock and.. well nothing more. I guess they hide advanced options for users.

    Some bios needs to be modded to show/unlock advanced options, others simply can´t be modded.
