Remove Optane from my NUC


Ok so I've tried to remove the Optane from my NUC for 2 days now. I have disabled it in the Intel Optane Memory software. I don't have any Intel Rapid Technology screens. in my NUC there is a setup, but nothing to disable. If I change the drive setup to to remove the optane it states it could cause the OS to not boot (which it does). How do I separate the Optane from the HDD so it will boot to just the HDD?
