Thank you for your interest in the Intel® Optane™ Memory.
I understand you are experiencing an issue while trying to setup your system.
Aside from the suggestions kindly provided by community member raju2529, have you tried testing your HDD in different SATA ports? This because sometimes lane sharing may cause the issue you describe.
I'll be waiting for your response.
