Enabling Optane with Asus Prime z390-a

Jump to solution

Hi there,

 

I am setting up a new machine with an Asus Prime z390-a motherboard with the latest BIOS (0805 I think it is named).

 

I have a Samsung 970 Evo Plus in M2_1 and a 32GB Intel Optane stick in M2_2 - In the BIOS both are controlled by RST.

 

The Optane stick shows up as a regular SSD as you can see in the disk manager screenshot.

 

The Optane UI shows "No compatible disks for Intel Optane memory (see screenshot).

 

Attached is also a SSU scan. What am I doing wrong?

 

I am going to be using the Optane stick on a 7200RPM 8TB disk, but I wanted to get everything going before moving the disk...

 

Thanks! :)

Never mind. I must be tired. I uninstalled the Optane software and re-installed the Intel RST v17.0.1.1075 and tried again, this time I actually read the "error" on that latest version and it says: "Your system appears to be Intel Optane memory ready and Intel Optane memory module is present, but no compatible disks to accelerate were detected in your computer. Please install a compatible disk.".

 

Now I feel stupid. I guess it works, when I eventually attach my HDD :)

By the way, I tried using the latest RST as well as uninstalling that and installing using SetupOptanememory.exe ...
