I'm sorry but it is impossible to understand what you have or want to do even after rereading the thread several times.

You say you got a crazy idea to install Windows 7 on a laptop which says it comes with Windows 7.

You said it has an SSD/HD combo drive with Express cache and you somehow want to install to it differently than the way it came, but don't want a Dual Boot. Then exactly how?

Windows Thin PC requires 16gb disk space. How does it fit on an 8gb cache.
