I jsut got my y410p. The model I got included the SSD. However, while the it is visible in intel rapid repsonse software, there is no option to accelerate. There is a tab called perfomance instead and that jsut refers to a power saving feature, no option to use the SSD as a cache.
The harddrive is setup as an AHCI drive and I am running windows 8.
Solved! Go to Solution.

If that's the status of the Intel Rapid, your system might be using the Expresscache to cache the SSD,
I have seen a Y510p utilizing express cache preinstalled.
to check if expresscache is the Software caching your SSD you can follow this Post
if it's cached properly with express cache you shouldn't have to worry.
Hope this helps,

I just did as on that post but no significant improvement It still takes around a minute to boot up. Just wonder should I install the intel rapid storage before I install expresscache even the IRST does not work? Also after install expresscache the cache read/write percentage are both 0.00%. is that normal?
I just wipped the entire system and install a Win 7 on it instead. Does that matter
