Replacing the 16GB mSATA Disk Caching SSD

HP Envy Phoenix 810-160 Deskto
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

In a separate post, I noted that boot error (3F0 and 3F6) problems went away when I physically removed the failed SanDisk 16GB mSATA SSD drive from the motherboard.  My question now is, do I really need to even replace the mSATA SSD?  If I did want to replace it, do I just get a new blank one and reinstall it?  Or...does the SSD need to be "configured" in some way before/after installation.  

 

My PC seems to be running pretty well without the 16GB mSATA Disk Caching SSD right now.

 

Thanks in advance!

Replacing the 16GB mSATA Disk Caching SSD

Hello.

 

I have seen this before.

 

Helped by removing old 7200 RPM HDD and install a new SSD equal to old HDD. Then after you migrate current install from HDD to SSD there is no need for a 16GB disk caching drive.

 

The PC is now fast and HP recovery software will work okay. The disk caching drive is not needed.
