The UEFI (BIOS) in My HP INTEL I7 64-bit WIN10 laptop sees my Hybrid Cache LITEONI 24GB SSD, but it is disabled and can't be enabled. My laptop's fast speed is lost as a result.
The 24GB SSD PASSES ALL BIOS diagnostics, but the INTEL Rapid Storage Technology says it is inaccessible and cache mode is turned "off" for the data volume AND the cache volume. How can I get this Hybrid 24GB SSD working?

papatim:
The 24GB mSATA SSD on my laptop is listed in the BIOS as follows:
Data Volume, RAID)(Stripe), 3.8GB, Normal
Cache Volume, RAIDO(Cache), 18.6GB, Disabled

I was told by a guy in "FaceBook Microsoft ® Windows 10 (Help & Support Community) that my 24GB SSD is too small.
Microsoft at: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4028142/windows-10-system-requirements - says 20GB HDD space for 64-bit.
So my 24GB SSD is too small.
I'm thinking the INTEL Rapid Storage Technology system rejected it because it's too small to install WIN10 (only 20GB available for cache.
I ordered a HK Hynix 256GB SSD on eBay.
Eagerly awaiting delivery.
I will post results of installation.

A 24GB drive IS too small for an OS install.
Yes, MS says 20GB free space.

That does not mean it will actually work in a physical drive of that size.
"free space", not drive size.

That 24GB drive was never meant to be an addressable drive in its own right.
At most, a cache for the HDD.
