Hi. I have a MSI 7A63 MB with Intel 7600k. Last BIOS and drivers installed. I bought an Optane 32Gb memory module to install. I realized that I needed to upgrade to Win 10 (from win 7). I did that (not fresh install to not loose my data and apps). Then I saw I needed to change from MBR to GPT UEFI. I did that too. In BIOS the Optane is listed in the storage screen and I enable raid/Optane and remapping the M.2 slot in with Optane is. I set the Optane Genie option to ON and I start window in EFI mode (this is checked in MS32Info app in windows too). I can' see the module under RST Intel devices in BIOS or in diskpart CMD app in windows. I installed Optane app and drivers and later the RST app and drivers. Windows says my sister is ready but Not Optane is detected ( there is No memory in device manager, diskpart or Diskmanager apps. I started to think the module is bad. Can you help me troubleshoot this please!

Hi. Thank you for help me!
I attached the required files.
The Optane Module is in the M2_2 slot, and the HDD Sata is in the Port number 4 (IFresh install of windows 10 Pro x64) using only one HDD
As you can see, the Optane Module is detected in BIOS.... but ... I can see it in RST submenu of BIOS or anywhere else.
Please lead me in the right direction. I think the module can be defective.....
Thanks for the information provided.
Based on that, We recommend you to connect the Intel® Optane™ Memory in the port M2_1 and also connect the SATA Boot drive in the SATA port 1.
Note: Make sure to only keep the SATA Boot Drive connected to the motherboard.
Please let us know the outcome of your situation.
