Hi I have trouble with install a 16gb optane. I already updated BIOS to lastest version (mine is MSI B250 pro-vdh) and converted my partition to GPT and changed boot mode to UEFI but still not work. The program say that i'm still in legacy mode. Is there any way i can fix without reinstall the windows? PS: I have a piture of what the program say and report from Intel System Support Utility report as well.
- Scott is right, the drive to be accelerated must contain at least 5 MB of continuous unallocated space at the end of the drive (yes minimum 5MB, rather than GB).
- Another potential reason could be that the Optane module has been previously used in another volume, so it may need to be "cleaned".
The Diskpart application can be used to remove all partitions and metadata from the module, see here for more information on this process.
Do you have at least 5GB of uncommitted space at the end of the drive? If you created partition(s) that encompass the entire drive, then it cannot be supported.
