Hello,
how to boot to external sata drive using ahci. The system boots fine...it just does not recognize the external SATA drive in the bios after I enabled AHCI.

Could you have included the interface type that connects the external drive to the host computer?

Are you referring to the boot order in the bios? If so, then yes. I am working with a hp elitebook 8530w and if I press F9 to select the boot device, the eSATA drive isn't listed.
