AspireS3-391 (hybrid drive) how to replace hdd with ssd?

My HDD drive failed, and would not clone. I have an SSD in its place, but the computer can't see it. No matter what I do all I can find is one 18.64 GB drive, which I assume is the original 20 GB SSD part of the hybrid drive I had. I have managed to load windows on the 18.64 GB drive, from a USB image.

I also loaded Ubuntu before that, but couldn't find any partition to remove, enlarge or whatever.

I need help on finding the new SSD drive which is 256 GB.

A friend, also with an Aspire, tried to put an SSD in place of the HDD. Same problem, but his HDD isn't bad so he just put it back, and the computer went back to just fine.
