Cannot Enable Intel Optane Memory

Jump to solution

Hi I cannot enable Intel Optane even after upgrading the BIOS. While installing it keeps showing me Unsupported BIOS, while I have a Gigabyte Z370 HD3P which supports Optane. I'm attaching the log file.

  1. Your Bios is set to Legacy mode. In order to use Optane Memory your Bios need to be set to UEFI mode. \
  2. In order to enable UEFI mode in your Bios, your HDD should have GPT partition.
  3. In order to change the partition type without data losing, use MBR2GPT command: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-convert-mbr-disk-gpt-move-bios-uefi-windows-10
  4. Before partition conversion, prepare full backup.

What sata mode do you have selected in your bios, and what modes do you have?

 

You need to contact gigabyte regarding any bios problems.
