  1. First you need to install the H10 drive.
  2. Next, you need enter Bios setting and change the default SATA mode from AHCI to "Intel premium RST..." The Bios UEFI mode must be enabled.
  3. Now you may install the Windows.
  4. Since the system was installed in UEFI mode, the disk will have GPT partition. Open Disk Management and shrink the last partition t leave 5MB-15MB of unallocated space in the end of the drive.
  5. Next, download and install the Intel RST Windows driver.
  6. Finally download from Microsoft Store Intel Optane Memory and Storage Application.
  7. Enable Optane.
  8. For detail explanation of the above instruction read the Optane Installation User Guide . Before starting installation process read the guide: para. 1.2 requirements, para. 2.1 System buildup, para. 3.1 Intel Optane Memory and Storage Application including Intel RST Windows driver.
