Hi Andy,

 

I think I’m not following you. The drivers for the Intel® Optane™ Memory are only available for Windows* OS as you can see here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28400/Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Intel-RST-User-Interf...

 

Are those the same packages you are referring to?

 

If I understood you correctly, you want to setup the Intel® Optane™ Memory in a Linux system, right? If so, then it’s not possible as the module is only compatible with Windows* OS, and therefore there is no a step-by-step guide for this purpose.

 

Have a nice day.

Hi afros2,

 

Thank you for posting in the Intel® communities.

 

The Intel® Optane™ Memory is only compatible with Windows* OS, so you won’t be able to set it up under your new Linux OS.

 

 I hope this information clarifies your concern.

 

Have a nice day.

Hi Diego I have looked into Intel site and driver packages are shown under heading of Independent OS,s and there is one for Linux. My question was not really whether it was possible but more the HOW as in step by step process of actually doing the install and whether I would have to start by formatting the drive before install.
