    Can't set SSD drive in AHCI


      I have installed a PNY SSD drive on my laptop. I installed Windows 10 and all goes well except that when i go to the control Manager the ATA/ATAPI controller are not in AHCI, but it is recognize like a ssd drive in the material of Windows 10
      I look for in the bios but there is no option to change this to ahci.

      Is there a driver i can download to set it in ahci

      My laptop is :

      HP Pavillon G6 Notebook

      AMD A6-3400mm APU with HD Graphic 6520G

      Thank you

          Your laptop has to have the feature in the Bios to use it.  I would recommend that you contact HP directly to see if AHCI is supported, you may just need a BIOS or Chipset update from them.

            Your laptop/APU must use the drivers furnished by Windows Update.

            Windows 10 Driver Support for AMD APU Graphics Products

            The following AMD APU products with AMD Radeon™ Graphics support up to WDDM 1.2 and DirectX® 11 on Windows 10:
