I have installed the Optane module and install the driver software but the message is "can not detect memory modules". I can see it either from BIOS and from Disk Management, (see figures).
From BIOS I have activated the RST to "Intel RST Premium with Intel Optane System Acceleration".
Having said that, Do I need to disable CSM? because I encounter system boot issue every time I disable it. The mother board on-board LED indicates VGA error! has anything to do with this?
Please assist me, what am I missing here?
Optane ready Aorus Z370 Ultra Gaming v1.0 with up to date BIOS F7
Intel i7 8700K
240GB SSD (OS drive)
XFX Radeon HD 5550 Graphics Card
450Watt Akasa Power Supply
Thanks for posting in our community.
It is recommended to disable CSM mode. However, it is possible the system is currently running on Legacy mode, which explains why it's not booting.
In order to better assist you, please provide us with the following files:
- Intel® System Support Utility report.
1. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows- Download the latest Intel® SSU.
2. Run the scan. Select to include "everything."
3. Name and save the report.
- Intel® Optane™ Memory logs. They're located at C:\Users\[your user name]\Intel\Logs
I do apologize for delay, and thanks for your advice and the quick reply.
However I could manage and sort out the problem:
a. Format my primary drive in this case the SSD and install the Windows 10 based on "GUID GPD".
b. It was not necessary to disable CSM mode, because apparently my MoBo has compatibility issue with my graphics card.
c. Activated the RST mode and also set the "PCIe Storage Dev On port21" configuration to the "RST Controlled" all of these from the BIOS.
Then the OPTANE memory from its software could be enabled and got pared with the SSD.
Now it seems working just fine!
Thanks for sharing the solution. It is good to know you were able to enable Intel® Optane™ memory on your systems.
These details will be useful for other users with similar system specifications as you.
If you have a SSD/HDD configuration, Optane will do more for you paired with the HDD.
The performance improvement when it is paired with the SSD is almost nothing.
Hope it helps!
