I have a Lenovo IdeaCentre and I have installed Intel Optane Memory 16GB prod. no. MEMPEK1w016gaxt.  Lenovo recognizes it, but I don't recall seeing it in BIOS except via the UEFI diagnostic and testing screen from F10.  The BIOS is up to date.  I am unable to complete the process of enabling acceleration from the Intel Optane Memory and Storage app.  The SetupRST.exe finished with success for a 10th generation processor.  The Optane "disk" is unitialized.  Here are some screenshots.

One article says 5-10 MB at the end of the system disk.  Another says 5-20 MB at the end of the boot volume.  Is BitLocker encryption supported?  Doesn't the uefi create a Fat32 partition automatically which is not NTFS?  How do I enable the acceleration?

Hey,

Intel Optane Memory 16gb was not pre-installed.  I put it in with a screw that I had already.

Did you set the SATA Mode parameter in BIOS to the Optane setting? If not, you will need to make this change. If you have already installed Windows onto the HDD/SSD, you may need to boot Windows in Safe Mode in order to apply this change.

The settings were done when I ran SetupRST.exe for 10th Generation platforms.  I have considered removing the card and starting over.

Hello, Daniel-dansoftn.


Thank you for your reply and the SSU logs you provided us.


Let me add to the SU answer the following information:


1- We advise you to contact Lenovo* To get assistance related to the BIOS settings and confirm compatibility.


2- Please, check that your storage device partition style is set in GPT.


3- Check that the Optane memory is empty. If Intel® Optane™ memory has partitions, or in general, if for any reason it has any data stored (such as metadata from a previous configuration), the process to enable it may fail. In those scenarios, it is recommended to clean the module's data.

For more information and support about the BIOS and system compatibility, contact Lenovo*.


We hope fellow community members have the knowledge to jump in and help.


We will follow up with you again on Friday, the 4th of March 2022, if we do not receive an answer from you. Please, let us know if you would like to schedule a different date for the follow-up.


Best regards.

I opened a ticket with Lenovo.

The disk to be accelerated is GPT.

I diskparted and performed a clean all on the Optane ssd.

Some screen shots show PCIe SSD and some Intel Optan Memory
