I already read this, but i dont work, because i dont the RAID mode. I only have AHCI or Compatible and if i start Windows 7 in the Compatible mode it wont start and get a blue screen. ;(
I need the RAID mode, but how I get it, because I able to have this? It is just pointless if I have a mSata SSD slot and cant use it, because I dont have a RAID mode in the BIOS. I am disappointed of the Lenovo Support, they even cant help customer on they own products

Can you share what are the result when you ran the "eccmd.exe -info" in Cmd admin.
When you switch to compatible and you're having BSOD, try this
Set the BIOS controller to Compatible then right away boot the system to Safemode. It will boot then Restart the system to boot in normal and you won''t get the BSOD anymore.
Try it let me know your findings.

Based on your Uploaded Photo,
Your system was Pre-configured with Express Cache to do the SSD caching this is Beacue of your Sandisk SSD has its own software to do the cache.
Refer to this link http://www.sandisk.com/products/software/express-cache/
and this does not requires RAID setup in BIOS that is needed by the Intel Smart Response Technology.
Raid Set up procedure in BIOS is need only If you want to use Intel Smart Response to do the caching because this technology requires it, If you want to use the IRST cache I'm afraid you might need to reinstall the OS with Raid already set up in BIOS. changing the Sata controller while the OS is not installed in that set up may cause the BSOD exactly what you're experiencing.
here is a guide if you want to set up Intel Smart Response for Caching
But Right now I think the caching in your system using the Express cache is not working correctly. because of the error "**ERROR** ECCmd Request device is not available (This means that ExpressCache is installed, but the mSATA device is not configured correctly.
Can you follow this Guide then
Uninstall ExpressCache from "Programs and Features" control panel the procede with the steps below
Install ExpressCache by double clicking on the setup file downloaded in Step 6 and follow the on-screen instructions. Reboot as prompted.
After the set up - run the eccmd.exe -info again in CMD and It should give you a result like this
If you want. Run a DISK Read/Write Test Before and After This Procedure I'm sure you' get the results you want.
