Hi Ayman_Elaidy92,

Thank you for posting in the Intel® communities.

The recommended and supported configuration of the HDD is with only one partition. If you divide the drive in several partitions, the Intel® Optane™ Memory may not work properly, especially if you then install another OS in the drive. So my recommendation is to keep your single partition in your drive.

You can find additional information about the Intel® Optane™ Memory in the following site: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000024018/memory-and-storage/intel-optane-m... Frequently Asked Questions for Intel® Optane™ Memory

I hope this information answered your concern. If you have additional questions, feel free to ask.

Have a nice day.

Regards,

That was the answer of intel support on twitter they say its ok .... ?????

Intel Support :

The functionality of the Intel Optane Memory is not affected if you have multiple partitions on the HDD as the OS drive is still accelerated with the system files and applications, delivering a better system responsiveness compared to adding additional RAM. Happy Computing!!

what should i do ?

Hi Ayman_Elaidy92,

 

 

You can have another partition in your drive, although the recommended configuration is with one single partition. I've seen other community users with 2 or 3 partitions in the booting drive and they are able to accelerate the drive, so that's why I mentioned that the module may work, but that's not the recommended configuration.

 

 

On the other hand, if you are planning to install another OS in the new partition, that won't work as drives with several OS installed are not supported.

 

 

Please let me know if this clarifies the concern, or if you are still having doubts about it?

 

 

Have a nice day.
