Iv checked my bios multiple times making sure everything is setup correctly CSM is disabled and all the other things are as they should be. Iv also updated my bios to the latest version just to be sure. But still havent had any luck getting this thing to work.

 

I have uploaded a image of the error and my ssu text file using the SSU tool from you guys

Hi Dre,

 

Thank you for posting in the Intel® communities.

 

I have seen this error code in the past, and it has been fixed by un-installing the application, making sure there is at least 5MB of unallocated space at the end of the primary drive and then re-installing again the application.

 

For your reference, the partitions in the primary drive should look like in the picture below:

Please take a screenshot of the Disk Management window just to check the drive partitions. You can open Disk Management by pressing the Windows* key + x, and then selecting the Disk Management option from the menu that will appear.

 

I’ll be waiting for your response.

 

Have a nice day.

Hi Dre,

 

Thank you for this additional information.

 

You can indeed accelerate a secondary drive, however this secondary drive must meet some requirements like for example not having any OS installed and only one single partition.

 

I recommend you to format your secondary drive so it meets the requirements. It may be possible that the error is happening because of this reason.

 

Please also take a look at the following article that includes additional details about the requirements for secondary drive acceleration: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000027987/memory-and-storage.html

 

If you have any questions or doubts, please let me know.

 

I recommend to perform a low-level format in the secondary drive instead of a regular format. The following article shows some third party tools you can use to perform the low-level format: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000006198/memory-and-storage.html

 

I’ll be waiting for your response.

 

Have a nice day.
