Based on the screenshot provided, we would like you to please try to de-concatenate the Intel® Optane™ Memory Module from your BIOS, here is the possible location according to MSI*'s website:
BIOS\Settings\Advanced\Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology\Deconcatenate\PHYSICAL DISK INFO, and try the "Reset to non-Optane" option.
Please let us know if this worked for you.
Could you please share screenshots of your BIOS?
According to MSI* website, the option should be there, we would like to help you further by having some screenshots, but also, you may need to contact MSI* in case we can't find the specific option.
We found the http://dlcdnmkt.asus.com/microsite/Optane-Memory-SOP.pdf following document that may help you with this situation. Please let us know if those options are the same as the ones you have.
Alham, since you have an ASUS board, there is also information on the ASUS site regarding Optane and its use:
https://www.asus.com/microsite/mb/intel-optane-ready/ GET READY FOR INTEL® OPTANE™ MEMORY
Specifically:What isIntel Optane Memory Ready
Intel® Optane™ memory* is a revolutionary non-volatile memory technology supported by ASUS 200 Series motherboards. Intel Optane memory accelerates attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive.
The information is out there.
so because it says "speeds up boot times" im supposed to understand that its only for boot drives. - a simple sentance: only works with boot drives, who have been fine.
Kinda like when you buy and periphail for your pc, it states clearly in the description (not the FAQs or forums or internal website...but THE ACTUAL SHOP) what is supported and what isn't.
dude seriously, the marketing here doesn't mention shit about no secondary drive support.
and if you want to keep on defending a multi billion dollar company's marketing strategy's...go ahead and baaaaa... but i recommend you find something better to waste your time with
