Hello everyone, I wanna buy a S430 with 16GB mSSD.
I wanna ask, where is the windows installed? In the mSSD or HDD?
If it is installed in the mSSD, does it means that if I replace the HDD with a SSD, I will not lose the windows with lenovo features like EE3.0 but only the data stores in the pre-installed HDD?
Thanks a lot!!

Windows is installed on the HDD. The mSATA is used for caching purposes with software called ExpressCache. It makes the HDD performance faster.
If you intend to replace the HDD with SSD, then there is no purpose to buy the 16GB mSATA. The mSATA cache will not make a SSD faster.
