  1. Optane memory accelerates the whole drive.( all partitions, including Windows on the accelerated drive).
  2. There is also possibility to accelerate an secondary HDD (not containing Windows installation). However only one drive may be accelerated in a given system.
  3. Optane Memory can be enabled only on boards supporting (ready for) Optane Memory.
  4. In the following links you may find all information how to install and enable Optane Menory and Hardware requirements:

16GB optane does not support pinning. You do have the optane module paired with some HDD, correct?
