Optane Error Code 0xA005004B

Jump to solution

When I try to enable my optane memory module on a secondary disk drive, I receive the error code 0xA005004B. Both the boot drive and the drive I'm trying to accelerate are in GPT, and I have at least 5mb of unallocated space in the drive I'm trying to accelerate. What steps should I take to resolve the issue?

 

Attached is the SSU report.

Thank you for the reply, Josh!

 

Apologies for the late response. Fortunately, I was able to solve the issue myself.

 

I had incorrectly assumed that the 5mb of unallocated space could be present at any place within the drive, as it needed to be specifically at the end of the drive. I used AOMEI Partition Assistant to resize the EFI System Partition, creating 16mb of unallocated space to the right of the EFI partition (at the end of the drive), after which everything is now in working order.
