No. Readyboost is looking for removable storage added via the usb port.
You don't need to do this anyway.
Readyboost is a fancy marketing name for "We've noticed flash memory is
faster than hard disk for running the pagefile, so if you have some flash
memory in the system we can use that for the pagefile". It isn't some kinda
super duper key to speed things up.
If you think about this, and think some more about what you've actually done
when you plug a flash memory module into an IDE port (e.g. installed a "hard
disk" that runs at flash memory speeds), then what you need to do is treat
your flash disk as no more than a very fast hard drive indeed, and move your
pagefile onto the flash disk.
