Hi WLiu35,

 

Thank you for posting in the Intel® communities.

 

I understand you are getting the error code 0xA005004B when trying to setup the Intel® Optane™ Memory. I’ve seen this error code in other threads because the system drive doesn’t have an unallocated reserved space of at least 5MB at the end of the drive. The system drive partitions should look like in the picture below:

I recommend you to confirm if you have this reserved space at the end of the drive. In order to do so, open Disk Management by pressing the Windows* key + x, and then selecting the Disk Management option from the menu that will appear.

 

You can take a screenshot of Disk Management so that I can take a look at it too.

 

Have a nice day.

Hi WLiu35,

 

Thank you for the screenshot.

 

As you can see, your primary drive doesn’t include the reserved space mentioned in my previous post.

 

Please add this space in your drive and then try to enable the module. The way to add this space is by re-installing the OS. During the OS installation process, you can reserve some portion of the drive capacity as unallocated space (at least 5MB), and the re-install the OS.

 

Additionally, make sure the system is configured in UEFI mode and not Legacy mode. Only UEFI mode is compatible with the module.

 

I hope you find this information useful.

 

Have a nice day.
