Inspiron One 2020 (2012), no option for AHCI

The Inspiron one 2020 doesn't appear to have an option to switch SATA Mode from ATA to AHCI. The manual list "ATA By Default". This PC is only a few years old, shouldn't it have an ACHI option?

Re: no option for AHCI in a Dell Inspiron one 2020

I guess not. So, what ARE the choices?

My records show my (similar) 2330 AiO as 2012-2013 ... So about 6 years old would be my guess.

Good catch.

Says no SATA-3/600 either.  

I guess now we know why some of these Inspiron AiO are so slow to boot and have Windows load completely. With just a spinning-HDD I've found it to be painfully slow.
