    Hi All,
    Apologies if this is a noob question, feel free to point me in the right direction should you wish. I have an HP Compaq 6715b laptop with F.07 firmware (Stock).

    I'm looking to buy an SSD for this machine but it doesn't have an AHCI option in the BIOS as its locked down to basic settings but it seems the motherboard is capable.

    I downloaded the 6715b_F.07_SLIC21__from_any_version from this site (but have not tried to apply it) which i have seen mentioned on some forums with "whitelist removed" which i am led to believe is what manufacturers do to limit the available BIOS options.

    If i apply this would i have more BIOS options, like AHCI available or am i barking up the wrong tree here?

    Like i said, noob question. Thanks
