    Hi everybody, i need help. I want to enable AHCI option on my notebook, but BIOS doesn't have such option. In general this BIOS doesn't have ANY useful options, just information.
    Notebook: HP Pavilion dv6700
    BIOS: Phoenix F.58
    I've heard that i can update my BIOS to unlock all it functions but I don't know how to do it at all...:wallbash:. So guys, I hope for your help :worthy:.

    Thank you a lot Tito. I'm sorry for a stupid question, but can you explain to me what I should do next with this file? Is it ready to flash my BIOS right after downloading, or no?
    P.S. and what does it mean "whitelist"?

    I've flashed my bios with file on your link, but no changes. BIOS is the same only with another number: F.5A. And, of course, no AHCI option... Maybe I don't understand something...

    WL removed means you can now install any wireless lan card.

    Well, why do you need the AHCI menu??

    I want to enable AHCI mode on my HDD. I saw in some video that some BIOS has all features and modes, include AHCI. So, that is the reason. I don't know how to do it and I hope for your help.

    As you might have noticed, HP BIOS is not the easiest to mod, so do not expect that somebody will just give you an instant answer. Most likely that will never happen, unless HP decided to make the option available in updated BIOS
