Here's the situation:
I have 2 HDDs (each 1TiB with dualboot windows 7 partions) as a quadboot which I can boot from both HDDs.
I have 1 msata slot available where I'd like to connect 120 GB SSD to and use it to accelerate each parttion on the HDDs (ca. 30GB for each partition).
Is this possible the way I described it (or would I need 4 SSDs) ?

I tried turning RAID off and it saw the unpartitioned space, but wouldn't allow me to install on it.
Anyone got this working with a single SSD?
some people do, i havent personally.

Now I found an old corsair 40gb ssd that I thought was dead but came to life in ahci mode. Would it be worth it to use it to cash in my setup or no. I'm just tryin to squeeze out all I can for now as I'm between careers ATM and won't be getting any new toys for prolly a year. Any help would defiantly be appreciated.
yea you can, it may be worth it depending on your needs from the drive.
