When going into my bios which seems to lack a lot of settings related to this I have access to a new sub category called storage allowing me to switch to RST for optane then causing a BSOD with the inaccessible boot device. Need Help!

I did a lot more research and technical support help and reached a conclusion that Lenovo has listed the optane 16gb as a feature on their website https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/legion-laptops/legion-y-series/Lenovo-Legion-Y530-15ICH/p/88GMY.... The only question to their support agents I asked was a 16 gb going to work before I go and buy it and try it. They told me basically that they could neither confirm or deny that a 16gb optane memory module would work even though its listed on their own website.

It was originally my own fault with the 32gb model because its not supported or listed but Lenovo fault on listing a 16gb on their site without confirming it would work.

Hi MThom29, Thank you for posting in the Intel® communities. Since you are using a laptop, I highly recommend you to contact Lenovo* to get assistance on configuring it for the Intel® Optane™ Memory. I cannot confirm you if your laptop is compatible with the module but configuring a laptop system is not the same as a Desktop computer. It may be possible that the laptop includes special features from the manufacturer at BIOS and OS level that we are not aware of, so that’s why it’s always recommended to contact the manufacturer before doing any system changes. Based on the message you mentioned in the description, it may be possible that your primary drive is not correctly partitioned and that your system is configured to work in Legacy mode, which is not compatible with the module. On the other hand, I found this thread in the Lenovo* community that mentions some general guidance to configure the module in this laptop model: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops/Is-Y530-compatible-with-Intel-Optane/td-p/4287791. However, as mentioned before, the best recommendation is to contact Lenovo* directly to get assistance on configuring the BIOS and OS properly. Have a nice day. Regards, Diego V.
