Intel Rapid Start Technology

Facing a problem with my Fujitsu UH572 and it is pretty related with this (great) post. After a board replacement intel controller is refusing to see the disk as hybrid and especially the SSD partition. Intel was using a 8G volume inside this 30G SSD partition for fastboot - but i dont use windows so i've encrypted the SSD partition and installed linux.

The fujitsu service is telling me that the disk is OK! but they are working on found out why the SSD partition has been disappeared.

Is it possible that this feature (intel rapid start technology) is being glued with the specific board or is it possible that a UEFI setting exist that tells the board the specs of the disk ?

It seems idiotic to me to exist such a connection but its being 3 weeks now and none of the fujitsu technicians cant reply to me on this.

btw This is my second UH572. I had the same problem with the board on the first but they have replaced it as the problem occurred 3 days after the purchase of it
