Yeah, theog is right. I forgot about that option.

If you define a primary active partition on the HDD and install into that partition, then you get no 100MB partition.

The other solution (that works most times) is to make the disk on which you install Disk0. If none of that works, moving the bootmgr after the installation is the next best solution.
How I can make the HDD disk 0? I assume it connected that socket onboard and I need to open and switch connections? Which I do not want to done with that. I messed up with my last laptop while I was cleaning inside and I ended up buying this new laptop.

Okay, let's say my last option is moving the bootmgr, I will definitely try that but while I'm about to clean install 6th time for godsake, I wanna make it right

Than all partitions on the HDD in drive options, make partitions on the HDD only.

Partition the Hard Drive in a Windows 7 Install
In other words, first make em all unallocated, then let's say make 2 partitions on HDD(which I always do for media files like music and videos)

But I think I did that too and still SSD even when it's unallocated making it's own 100 MB part on it. Just because it is disk 0

Do you not what acceleration cache now?
As the mSATA would need to be Disk 0.

After all tries the laptop is empty now, there's no OS and I'm just waiting for the right install move..
It came with win8 and I really don't like it, I used to using win7 for years and it's the best for me so far.

I did clean install first day with win7 drivers it was working great. Then I found out I can use my SSD as an express cache, but somehow it wasn't be able to use as an express cache. So I decided to reinstall win7 and I ended up here.

Finally I made it!



what it looks like now. SSD is unallocated, waiting for the action! Before installing drivers is there anything that I need to know for further expresscache actions?
