Error Code: 0xA008002D

Jump to solution

# Scenario-1:

 

1) 512GB NVME Samsung (with Windows-Installation).

2) Optane as secondary drive Acc. + HDD 2TB

 

Result: Not Problem.

 

# Scenario-2: Clone && Replace NVME: 512GB --> 2TB

 

1) 2TB NVME 660P (with Windows-Installation).

2) Optane as secondary drive Acc. + HDD 2TB

 

Result: I receive Code: 0xA008002D, but the HDD is being accelerated by Optane (tested with benchmark).

 

# Scenario-3: Clean Installation with 2TB

 

1) 2TB NVME 660P (with Windows-Installation).

2) Optane as secondary drive Acc. + HDD 2TB

 

Result: I receive Code: 0xA008002D and I can't connect HDD-Optane.

 

# Scenario-4: Clean Installation with NVME 256GB

 

1) NVME 256GB (with Windows-Installation).

2) Optane as secondary drive Acc. + HDD 2TB

 

Result: It's ok.

 

# Scenario-5: Clean Installation with P1 Crucial 1TB -->Same Error that 3).

 

RESUME:

 

  • As Secondary HDD accelerator, Optane works only, if the main NVME is <=512GB,

  1. Yes, this is strange. I agree. I assume that when you say "1 NVME", you intend to say 1 PCIe slot x4? Since the slot is PCIe x 4 and the installed drive may have NVMe interface or SATA interface.
  2. And yes, GPT partition is mandatory to work with Optane acceleration. MBR partition is not supported. See paragraph 1.2.3, 1.a. on page 6 in Intel Optane Installation Guide https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/memory-and-storage/optane-memory/intel-opt...

You are probably aware about this? Is the 2TB Partition style GUID Partition Table (GPT)? Is the UEFI mode enabled in Bios?

My System:

 

  • 1NVME (main) with Windows (512Gb or 1TB, 2TB)
  • 1NVME with Optane (to cache)
  • 1SATA, with the 2TB-HDD.

 

Then:

 

  • Main NVME (Windows) is always GPT (UEFI,...)
  • HDD with 2TB (not Windows installed) is GPT (but it's not necessary); the Disc should be accelarated with Optane.

 

All works ok with the main NVME <512GB; in another case, i get the error (with 1main nvme 1tb or 2tb)

 

 

 strange, no?

Thanks for your quick reply && the GPT info.

 

( I can see:1 Connector NVME/SATA (M.2) + 1 Connector Only NVME (M.2) + 1 SATA (normal, for HDD/SDD) )

 

As described, the problem is the size of the NMVE Disc with the Windows-Partition:

 

- With 512GB, there aren't Problems.

- With 1TB or greater, i get the error.

- With 1TB or greater, but HDD+Optane were previously connected , i get the error, but the cache works 😋 .

 

HDD (2TB) +Optane (32GB) is always equal.

Now I use the Configuration (work, work, work, ...):

 

- NVME slot of 512 GB (main, Windows)

- NVME Optane 32GB slot (cache)

- HDT 2TB (accelerated by Optane)

 

and it's OK; however, if I use 1TB, 2TB in the NVME slot (main, Windows), I get the problem.

 

I am interested in knowing why I get the error.

 

Thanks in advance.
