Dear Adham


Welcome in Lenovo Forums


There is an application called ( Intel Rapid Start Technology ) should be installed n your machine to be able to see the SSD details


Please use the below link to install the application


 Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) :

Windows 8 (32-bit, 64-bit) :

if you have the SSD version its actually not a storage. Its used as a cache only.

Re: Lenovo Y500 SSD problem

Same here. I tried installing Intel Rapid Start Technology. It did not install and said that my computer does not have the minimum requirements to install the software. What does it mean? Do I have a ssd on my Lenovo Y 500?
