Change IDE to ACHI on Asus h110m-a M.2 MOBO?

I wanted to install MAC OS X on one of my spare hard drives so I watch a YouTube video on how to do it. It said to go to my BIOS and change Sata Mode to ACHI, I tried that but couldn't find ir nor locate where it is.

The mobo i have is the Asus h110m-a M.2

Can someone with a same or similar Mobo tell me how i can change the Sata mode to ACHI?
