ok, so here is an update. turns out that windows 10 was looking at things wrong i guess, turns out the ssd is 32gb, the model is samsung ssd pm830 mSATA 32gb. that should be big enough for windows 10 to install on, right? so my original idea that it should have installed there is correct? system is still super slow, when i went to accelerate a drive it only had the option to accelerate the hdd. the 8gb drive showed, but couldn't be used. then I disabled the acceleration and was trying to get it to accelerate the 8gb drive. there was some option on the 8gb drive that i clicked and then it disappeared and now it shows up as a 32 gb drive, it also now shows up as a 32 gb drive in the device manager.
