Intel Optane Not Detected In BIOS Or Windows

Hello,

My 32GB Intel Optane Memory is not detected anymore in BIOS or Windows. I tried looking for it on everything, NVMe configuration in bios, device manager, Intel Rapid Storage, etc. I cannot find it, it's not detected. I installed it 100% correctly and securely in my computer. My system is a RAID 0, so I'm using both of my hard drives so I can install Intel Optane. I did the following steps:

1. Clear the RAID, set both as default again

2. DISKPART Clean all for both hard drives

3. Installed the Intel Optane Module in different slots, nothing happened

4. Reinstalled Windows

5. I reset one of the hard drives as non-optane before any of the steps above

Please help me, I am new at this since I'm not that familiar with software.

Hello TicsojiSAC15,

 

 

Thanks for the file.

 

 

You mentioned the Intel Optane Memory is no longer being recognized. Can we assume it was detected before? If so, what has changed in the system recently?

 

 

From the Intel SSU report, we noticed your boot drive is a RAID 0 array and the secondary drive is an NVMe based SSD (Samsung SSD 960 EVO*). Please notice that the https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000023994/memory-and-storage/intel-optane-m... drive to be accelerated by Intel Optane Memory must be a single SATA based drive. RAID volumes and NVMe SSDs are not supported.

 

 

Best regards,
