Assuming your're planning on replacing the 2.5" drive with a 2.5" SSD (there are no mSATA drives at 4T -- M.2 yes, but mSATA, no), best is to get rid of the cache drive (or use it as a small storage drive).  While it accelerates the hard drive, it will slow down the native SSD.

thanks

what about the rest of the questions ?

4 Tb samsung evo 850 ssd drive is it ok with the bios? is there a compatibility issues or no? 

which will be faster installing windows on higher capacity mSATA chip and using an HDD drive as storage , or getting it out and use single lage capacity SSD drive ?

thanks in advance

The native SSD will run twice as fast as the mSATA drive.
