    > i tried finding the hidden sata setting by pressing ctrl+s but no change.

    Just succeeded with the following: press Ctrl+S while in BIOS on "Information" page (unchangeable) and then switch to the next page. Likely they missed to rewrite pages after this feature unlocking.
    As result, installed Kubuntu 20.04; it succeeds in all aspects that I could detect in 1-day run (working NVME disk, video, keyboard, touchpad with enabled tap as press...)

    Hi,I have acer nitro 5 i7 12th gen AN515-58-79MU, im trying to install ubuntu 18.04 lts version but neither my SSD nor my hardisk is detected, i have tried changing the SATA mode, but that option is not visible, anyone can help.

  • @PondeepakIf windows is installed, you need to first enable safeboot via msconfig. Then restart windows and access the bios. Go to main tab, press ctrl+s and change sata mode to ahci or disable vmd controller.
