Hey guys i recently just got an SSD card and ive read some guides that before doing a clean install windows on it i first have to enable AHCI mode to enable TRIM. Them guides says i can find this in the BIOS boot but the problem is i really couldnt find it. Does anyone know where to enable this? Thanks in advance
