Unsupported system BIOS

I cant enable my Optane memory. I use 850 EVO to boot Windows, with GPT format and a WD HDD 1TB for data, Optane 32GB correct M2 slot

My mainboard is AsRock B360 Gaming K4. I go into Bios and disable CSM, and activate Intel RST for SATA

Thank you for your reply.

 

 

Please follow the guides and indications of your OEM regarding the BIOS settings necessary to use the Optane memory, a useful link that includes videos and other information from Asrock* is the following:

Thank you for your reply and the information provided.

 

 

As I understand from the first logs you provided your CPU is an https://ark.intel.com/products/126684/Intel-Core-i7-8700K-Processor-12M-Cache-up-to-4-70-GHz- Intel® Core™ i7-8700K Processor and based on the new logs your new motherboard is an https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-B360-F-GAMING/ ASUS ROG STRIX B360-F GAMING with an https://ark.intel.com/products/133332/Intel-B360-Chipset?q=Intel%C2%AE%20B360 Intel® B360 Chipset. This being said we recommend you to review the https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000026040/memory-and-storage/intel-optane-m...

Hello thonga4,

 

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

 

In order to further assist you we will like to know the following information:

 

  • Did you reinstall your OS after switching the motherboards?
  • Did you leave the unallocated space of at least 5MB on the booting HDD (Samsung SSD 850 EVO 120GB)?
  • Is the error the same as before when trying to accelerate your secondary drive or is the system giving you a new error code?
  • Can you provide us with a screenshot of the "Disk management" of windows showing all your drives and partitions?
  • It may be possible as well that the Intel® Optane™ Memory has to be cleaned. You can clean the module following these steps:
-Open the Command Prompt as Administrator.

 

-Run the command diskpart.

 

-Run the command list disk. Please take note of the ID associated with the Intel® Optane™ Memory. If possible please take a screenshot of this output too as it shows useful data.

 

-Run the command select disk . Make sure to use the ID from the previous step.

 

-Run the command clean all. This will start the cleaning process on the Intel® Optane™ Memory. The process will delete all data so make sure you are selecting the correct unit.

 

-After doing this and making sure your BIOS is configured properly, try again to enable the module and let us know the results.

 

 

We will be looking forward to your reply.

 

 

Best regards,
