Having two optane modules, can I use one as boost for windows and the other one as storage for another OS?

I understand only one Optane module can be used for system acceleration, and attached to one SATA drive. My question is, would I be able to use the second module as a regular SSD, for the boot and system partitions of a Linux distribution? That way I would effectively boosted both OSs in my system.

Thanks?

Hello RafaelGCPP.

 

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Technical Support.

 

 

Please refer to the https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000024018/memory-and-storage/intel-optane-m... Frequently Asked Questions for Intel® Optane™ Memory that includes the following information that we advise you to take into consideration.

 

 

•Is Linux* supported when using Intel® Optane™ memory for system acceleration?

•Can I use the Intel® Optane™ memory module as a standalone boot or data drive instead of system acceleration?

Sorry for the late answer.

I'll try using Optane just for Windows 10 acceleration then, and buy a regular SSD for the boot and system partitions on Linux...
