Enable SATA AHCI mode / disable optane on Acer Swift 5 (SF514-54GT) notebook

It seems that from Bios version 1.09 you cannot simply switch SATA modes anymore. The option just is not there anymore.

After hours wasted searching for a solution I found a hint in some forum (sorry… don’t have the link anymore).

The solution is easy:

  1. You enter Bios
  2. Switch to “Main” tab
  3. Then press “CTRL + S”
  4. The option mysteriously appears

Not sure what the idea behind this was from the engineering team. Not even any hint in the Bios text descriptions.
