    Hi,
    Laptop BIOS is more limited, compared to desktop version, so not every option will be available. Some required features were not even parts of it.

    If you already looked carefully and did not see it then no setting can help.


    Cheers

    Hi,
    Not being able to set BIOS SATA to AHCI and installing OSX on the laptop are two different things, most of the times. Many systems out there did not have that feature either, and yet OSX still can be installed. But, yes, it would be harder, and it depends on your particular system, chipsets, etc.

    Hope this help.
