Windows 7: Lenovo: Initialize disk before logical disk manager can access it?

Lenovo: Initialize disk before logical disk manager can access it?

So, when I view my disk mgt on my new Lenovo Y480, I get the message as seen in Lenovo Disk Mgt picure. When viewing my Intel Rapid Storage Technology (see other 2 pictures), it "appears" everything is working correctly. I have the Y480, model 209387U: IdeaPad Y480 14" Laptop | Shop | Lenovo | (US) . This is supposed to be using 32GB SSD.

Thoughts?

Update. I tried to initialize on the old machine that will be going back and received the attached message. Thoughts?

After looking at the properties of disk 0 and 1, disk 0 is the 32GB SSD and disk 1 is the 1TB. It would appear they're both working as I definitely have my TB of storage... huh...
