Ubuntu – Dual boot Ubuntu with Windows: cannot change from RAID to AHCI through BIOS


I recently got a new laptop HP Envy (Model: 15M-ED0023DX). Its full SSD machine and I want to the change the SATA from RAID to AHCI so that I could see the partitions when I boot from pendrive (Ubuntu) Reference.

However when I go to BIOS I do not see AHCI as an option. A similar answer from HP Forum Reference.

Is there any way around this, so that I can install Ubuntu on my machine?


Best Answer

After disabling Optane from Intel's RAID software, as we as from BIOS, all the partitions are visible when you live boot, so its safe install.

Please Note: Windows might crash when you disable optane, so keep a windows bootable ready too, if you need to reinstall it.
