Problem with Write Caching :(

I have a problem.
Isn't available policy of Performance Disk, and... write caching not working.
And I can not find its way to activate it from other side.
In the device manager, into the options of the disk, Performance Policy not appears. Before it was available in previous betas, but in this case it is impossible for me to activate the option.
Some form of activity? Thank you.

It is available on my rig. Running Win7 7048 x86.

Right click a drive in explorer. Select Hardware. Highlight relevant drive in the window and click properties. Under the Policies tab are the write caching options.
