Default Formatting a hybrid drive

Hi Computerforums

I recently purchased an ASUS ux32 which I have just formatted. The drive in the pc is a hybrid drive.
When I open Disc Management in windows I can see two seperate discs, one of them is 465gb the other one 29gb. I think the 29gb is the ssd part.
But the 29gb is unallocated, so my question is: how can i make use of the SSD part of my hard drive?

In that same screen right click on that partition on the lower part. Select format and format it to NTFS. Make sure after it is done you assign it a drive letter and you will have access to the drive.
