I have a Dell Latitude 5300 with a SSD drive and with what lshw shows as ''82801 Mobile SATA Controller [RAID mode]''. BIOS is configured by default with SATA operation = "RAID On" mode and I don't want to change it to AHCI mode.
When booting from Ubuntu with USB it doesn't show any disk. If I switch BIOS to AHCI it really can see the disk, but as said I need to make it work in RAID On mode.
When I run "sudo lshw -C storage" this is what I get:
*-storage description: RAID bus controller product: 82801 Mobile SATA Controller [RAID mode] vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 17 bus info: pci@0000:00:17.0 version: 30 width: 32 bits clock: 66MHz capabilities: storage msix pm bus_master cap_list configuration: driver=ahci latency=0 resources: irq:16 memory:912b0000-912b7fff memory:912cb000-912cb0ff ioport:3090(size=8) ioport:3080(size=4) ioport:3060(size=32) memory:91200000-9127ffff

Is there any way to make it work without switching to AHCI mode?
Thanks and best regards!
