I bought mSATA SSD to speed up my x230, I planned to install OS and most used programs on SSD and keep HDD as data storage, but I have problems with OS installation (Win10) to SSD and booting ntb from this SSD. Is there some problem (i read somewhere that this mSATA is not bootable what sounds pretty stupid to me)? Is somewhere step-by-step instruction how to install windows on mSATA? Thanks...

It is bootable. You need to make sure the bootloader is also on it. First, back up any needed user data. The easiest way is wipe the mSATA drive or remove all partitions. Clear the 2.5" drive and remove it from the machine, and then do an install with the mSATA as the only drive in the machine. Install the 2.5"drive and it will be a data drive.
