Changing to AHCI mode (Linux install) Nitro 5 AN515-54

Model: Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54 

CPU: I5-9300h

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050

GPU2: Intel UHD Graphics 630

NVME SSD: Kingston RBUSNS8154P3256GJ1

BIOS: V1.09 (latest I can find for my model)


To keep it simple and to the point, after many days of searching for solutions to the problem of why I cant install any version of Linux, it seems to be that my SSD must be in AHCI mode before any distributions will recognize the drive. My question is this: How do I enable AHCI on this laptop? I've checked up and down in the BIOS for a setting that will allow me to make said changes, nothing has showed up. It's also worth nothing that none of the previous versions of my BIOS have had any options to make this change, so downgrading does not seem like an appropriate action to take. 

Could anyone lend me a hand and offer some advice? I'm at a loss.
