Dell recommends flashing the latest BIOS available to the system. This is posted on Dell's driver
& downloads support web site (support.dell.com) under the "BIOS" section
Some of the BIOS settings are critical to Operating System performance. These are as follows:
Settings  System Configuration SATA Operation

If AHCI, IRRT, RAID On, or RAID modes are selected, Intel's Matrix Storage Manager /
Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver must be installed in conjunction with the
installation of the Operating System. See section "2.6.4 Intel Storage" of this document
Disabled: SATA Controllers are hidden
ATA = Basic Disk Operation mode, does not require additional storage
driver. Note: eSATA is not functional in this mode
AHCI = SATA is configured for AHCI mode (Advanced Disk Operation
mode) which offers faster performance, eSATA support, and increased
battery life. This mode requires an additional storage driver provided by
Dell
IRRT / RAID On = SATA is configured to support IRRT (Intel's Rapid
Recovery Technology). This mode supports AHCI mode features as well
as disk mirroring (RAID-1). IRRT allows data backup and restoration. This
mode requires an additional storage driver provided by Dell
RAID = SATA is configured to support RAID. This mode supports AHCI
mode features as well as disk mirroring (RAID-1). RAID allows data
backup and restoration. This mode requires an additional storage driver
provided by Dell
