Windows doesn't launch with M.2 Intel Optane enable


I just bought a new Intel M.2 Optane Memory stick of 16GB to my computer which support it. So to first recongnize the M.2 optane memory, i need to enable it in the BIOS, but when i reboot my computer after having enabled it, Windows doesn't launch and i got a message error that there is no bootable key. Can someone help me ?

Hi raphael_hdd,



According to your description, there is not a primary drive detected in your BIOS where the system can boot from, so this is probably a misconfiguration issue in the boot order.



Is there any way you can take a picture of the BIOS settings so I can take a look at it?



You are right when saying that the Intel® Optane™ memory has to be enabled in BIOS, but how are you enabling it exactly? It would be great if you can provide a detailed description of which settings you are configuring in BIOS to enable the module. That'll help me to understand where the issue could be.



On the other hand, make sure that after you have enabled the Intel® Optane™ memory in BIOS, there is a boot drive available. Please look for the setting named "Boot Order" (it may have a different name) to check what the boot order is and which drives are recognized by the BIOS. Basically, your HDD is the one that should be recognized as the primary boot drive so that the system can boot from it, this means that this drive must have Windows* OS installed. Please check this setting before and after enabling the Intel® Optane™ memory.



I'll be waiting for your response.



Have a nice day.
