If you truly don't have that option in the BIOS, you'll need to provide AHCI drivers during setup.

These are the drivers you need: SATA_ULi_6.1.0.3_XPx86.zip

If you have a floppy drive then put just extract the files unto a blank floppy. Then during the very first part of setup, press F6 when you see the F6 prompt.

If you don't have a floppy drive, you will need to slipstream the files using nLite.



If you use nLite, you should slipstream the rest of the drivers. http://global-download.acer.com/Step5.aspx?Step1=Desktop%2C%20Workstation&Step2=AcerPower&Step3=AcerPower%20F5&BC=Acer&SC=PA_6&LC=en&OS=Windows%C2%AE%20XP%2032-bit&FS=O01&Category=Driver
