Optane dualboot and "boot" drive

Jump to solution

Hello! I wonder what counts as a "boot" drive for optane? Is it possible to use ESP apart from Windows boot drive?

Let's say I have an SSD, a HDD and Optane memory. Is it possible to install Windows that way:

-Place ESP on an SSD (it will be shared with other OS)

-Place Windows on HDD

-Enable Optane by combining SSD with an Optane module?

Or optane looks for whole disks (ESP, Recovery, MSR, System)?

Hello Unb0rn,

 

 

Thanks for posting in our communities.

 

 

As part of the general requirements for Intel® Optane™ memory, systems with more than one storage drive, each containing an OS--are not supported and results can't be guaranteed. Intel Optane memory will look for whole/single drives.

 

 

You can learn more about Intel Optane Memory in the following articles:
