I have a Vaio Y21B7E (1.2GHz Core i3, 4GB ddr3) and i was thinking about installing a SSD.. until i discovered AHCI is disabled by default on my unit and that there's no way to activate it in bios!
..i really wasn't expecting that!
Is there any known workaround to fix this?
Am i supposed to edit the bios?
Any help is appreciated..
How did you determine it is disabled? It should be the opposite, AHCI enabled by default with no option to disable it without a BIOS hack. My Y11 is that way and it posts faster SSD benchmarks than my i7 VAIO F.
IIRC, the 11.6" YB with AMD chipset was different and the stock drivers were IDE mode, but the 13.3" Y (Intel) and 11.6" YA (Intel) were AHCI.
