Hello Alderion75,

 

 

Thanks for posting.

 

 

You can install one or more storage/secondary SSD on your Intel® Optane™ memory boosted system (as long as the motherboard supports them), without them interfering with the boot drive. As a matter of fact, Intel® Optane™ memory can only accelerate your boot drive.
