This is the second time i've installed MATE from LIVE USB, so i know what I'm doing setting up partitions /root, swap and /home. This BIOS is new and different and obviously i want to take advantage of some of the new options IF THEY ARE NOT GOING TO RISK breaking the thing. Could someone help me please choose the right BIOS settings so i can go ahead and install it? Thanks in advance and also if there is anything i should know about before partitioning and installing?

??? = I need help with these options.
Also, is there anything i need to know about partitioning the SSD to install to?
Like for example, AHCI.
EDIT: I forgot to mention, I'm using the 'Disks' app on the LIVE MATE session to examine the SSD and it looks like this; can i just wipe them all and start again?
