Thank you for the update, ewilson248. That the spirit :).

In my case the interesting part of the story is that I never installed "third-party hardware". The 1 TB hybrid Seagate HDD is tecnically a third-party hardware, which was on the other hand installed by the OEM, and I can't unnotice the HP logo on the device.

mdklassen had an idea for a workaround by adding a PCI Express SATA controller card then connecting the SSD to that board instead.

 

I am very happy to report this WORKS!

 

The short version is the SSD is taking a different path on the motherboard now. The PCIe board is acting as an intermediary. I find it ironic that this works as they specifically mention that they are NOT required to support 3rd party hardware.

 

So here you go: 

1. If your BIOS has secure boot disable that.

2. In the BIOS make sure the ability to use LEGACY devices is on and enabled

3. You can leave UEFI support on.

 

this is the board I used : 

SYBA SY-PEX40039 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) PCI-e 2.0 x1 Card

 

Cost me $15 on newegg.

 

so there you have it.  give it a try and post your results.

If it works and you know of others having the same issue spread the word
