Engineering Request: Enable/Disable SSD1 and SSD2 on XPS 9520 in BIOS

It is possible to have the option to enable and disable SSD 1 and SSD 2 in the BIOS?

I have two SSDs installed for troubleshooting but have no way of disabling one of them unless I physically remove it.

Welcome to the Dell Community forum @egorgol 

In the BIOS under the Storage Menu is there the "Port Enablement" option???

The XPS 15 9510 had the option, there was a glitch in the micro-code that would switch the drives.

Best regards,

Unfortunately, I don't have that option.  My other Precision and XPS laptops have had that option, so I was surprised when my XPS 9520 didn't.

Only have the option to choose between

- Disable all drives, AHCI/NVMe, or Raid

- Enable SMART reporting

- Enable/Disable MediaCard

Somethings not, right???

They even have the option listed in your manual.

Unfortunately, Dell isn't the best at ensuring their manuals or specifications are accurate. I found this out the hard way while trying to troubleshoot why my AX211 Wi-Fi 6E (6GHz) doesn't work.
