Also, have you tried to boot OS X without having that option available? You might be able to get it working without it. Hope it helps

Once again, you need to have a Windows installation to be able to run and use these files. There exists threads and topics about how to reflash a BIOS using different operating systems such as Mac, or Linux but I don't recommend that. Those topics are for advanced users and can be dangerous to play around with. These files were designed to be run using Windows and that's the route you should go with. If you don't have Windows installed, install it first. Good luck.

I Have installed OSX Lion on my HDD and it works fine ...
Now the harder part, i'm looking for AHCI driver for windows XP ... for a real dual boot system ...
Original A04 Bios http://dell.to/HTcVvX
Patched one here http://www.sendspace.com/file/je91vr
How to patch Dell Bios to enable AHCI
First of all...
The H61 chipset is perfectly capable of doing AHCI.
It's a Dell choice to put the H61 chipset in IDE Compatible Mode only
Here's how you can enable it:
- grab the latest bios. (.exe) from dell support.
- launch the .exe and do not close the flash windows app. Grab all the file from the %TEMP%\randomname subfolder
- Get AmiBcp tool.( AMI bios hacking tool)
- Load MS-Axx.bin from within AmiBCP.
Modify the entry to make the SATA menu available (change from default to USER)
Modify SATA controller menu (change from default to USER) and (from IDE to AHCI option) and ( from compatible to enhanced)
- Flash. Now you have enabled AHCI and you can choose from IDE to AHCI entering in F2 bios setp ....

Does it support AHCI? Can I follow your guide for my PC?
Posted 01 November 2014 - 02:18 PM
Just to clarify...
Many people and sites say: You can't install OSX if you don't have AHCI in Bios... They're lying....
You have two ways:
1st - Try update Bios to really see if AHCI option is unlocked
2nd - Use a kext Drive for you Chipset to allow your boot without AHCI enable in Bios

The latest release of official BIOS A03 doesn't support AHCI, but if my chipset Intel P55 Express support it, can I follow the guide posted by pippox0 in order to unlock AHCI?

For what regard the kext, the latest version is dated 2009. Do I have some chance that work with Yosemite?
Posted 01 November 2014 - 04:00 PM
I believe yes, only testing

With ATA mode can I able TRIM for my SSD?
Posted 01 November 2014 - 04:14 PM
Only testing.... But ATA mode is best to you even if TRIM doesn't work

Clover and Chameleon are great bootloader and in some cases Clover work better than Chameleon and in other cases is reverse...
Your hardware doesn't has UEFI, so i advice use Chameleon... but you cand use Clover anyway.

I think SSD trimming needs AHCI. Many computers support AHCI through SATA RAID mode (without actually setting up RAID arrays). Again, give it a try and you'll soon see, it won't break anything except booting maybe, in which case just revert the settings.

I believe RAID mode doesn't has TRIM opition anyway....
In many cases ATA is best for make hack i saw mant people having problems when select RAID mode...
