I have a WD Black M.2 500GB, 102GB available during this step but fails everytime. IPM requires only 16GB.

Hello VGonz11

 

Thank you for posting in the Intel Community.

 

What is the brand and model of your motherboard and what is your Intel® processor?

Hi Leonardo, thanks for the reply.

 

I attached a screenshot of my disk management here and made sure to change all of those BIOS settings as directed. I'll attach those scan results in my next post.

Hello VGonz11

 

Thank you for the system details can you try to set a 16GB of unallocated space at the end on your C drive and try again with the Intel® Performance Maximizer.

Leo, I was able to get the tool to work after creating a 20GB unallocated partition at the end of the drive. Thank you for the help!
