If you carefully read the Intel documentation of the Intel 4Gb Turbo Memory modules you will notice:
Intel® Turbo Memory Technology Cards Designed for easy integration into systems, the PCIe* full-minicard and half-mini interface card are available in 2 GB and 4 GB capacities. The PCIe card features: one Intel® Flash Cache Logic chip, two Intel® NAND Flash memory chips in parallel, and supports Microsoft Windows Vista* ReadyDrive* and ReadyBoost* technologies for the 2 GB card. The 2 GB card, with a one-time OEM configurable option, can substitute ReadyBoost for “User Pinning”; while, the 4 GB card supports ReadyDrive and User Pinning only.
Ergo: On the 4Gb Turbo Memory modules Readyboost is supposed to be grayed out
