First time poster with a msata question. I purchased a y570-08623U, and mine did not come with a msata rapid drive configuration. i am considering upgrading and buying one. A few questions first tho,
1. With rapid drive since you cannot "see" the SSD" in windows is there a benefit to using a larger SSD??(i.e. is a 20gb intel SLD(super fast), as good or better than a slower, MLC but larger i.e. 60 or 120gb for the same price as the MUCH smaller Intel one??
2. I know everybody's gonna jump and say, I can only install lenovo branded SSD's or whatever, but im not concerned about that...
3. Will i have to find somebody else with a y570 rapid drive version of the reinstall cd's or can i use my non rapid drive version? which actually has rapid drive installed but not activated? lol

Hello Sp0rk1859 and welcome to community,
You can install the msata and then reinstall Operating System.
