The basic test - Shutdown and start your laptop.

If it boots in < 30 seconds, your SSD is being used as cache.
If it takes more than 1:30 minutes to boot then something wrong with ssd caching.

Mine I guess is not using  it because it takes more than 1:30 to boot but I use Win 7 Ultimate.

 

So is this 8gb ssd works only with Win 8 and above? Or I need to do something with the LP?

 

Thanks
