Windows 7: Windows 7 Home 64 bit, not detecting rest of hard drive in Hybrid SSD

Windows 7 Home 64 bit, not detecting rest of hard drive in Hybrid SSD

Hi, I purchased Dell Inspiron i14z Ultrabook, it has a hybrid SSD, it have 32gb SSD and the rest 470gb hard drive. It had Windows 8 and I couldn't stand it...

I changed the BIOS settings from Intel Smart Response to AHCI, used Wipe Drive, (which detected the hybrid SSD as two separate hard drives) to format both hard drives, installed Windows 7 on the 32gb Hard Drive (I assume this is the SSD part), and everything went great.

But when I click MyComputer, it only shows 32GB as my hard drive, how do I set the settings where it would show the rest of the hard drive that is not SSD?

Whenever I change the AHCI setting back to Intel Smart Response Technology, it gives me a brief Blue Screen of Death briefly, then restarts in a loop....Help would be great, thanks!

If you wiped both of the drives then the other has No partition or drive letter. Open Disk Management then partition and format that other drive.

If you have a problem post a screen shot of the disk Management window, the full window.
