Hi,
I cant get run the optane memory on my apex rampage vi.
I installed it on the DIMM2 slot and in windows it was recognized as regular 27.1GB drive.
I installed the optane memory tool and when i start it i got the message that
are no compatible hard drives can be found.
In bios settings i set AHCI to "intel rapid storage premium", but i read everywhere that i must
set it to "intel rapid storage premium WITH OPTANE MEMORY".
But this option is not available. I read also that there where an option "Remap to M.2" but
i dont have this option to.
I hope somebody can help, i am stuck!

EDIT: OK i read that the x299 not supporting optane boost on secondary drives.
Is there a workarround or a custom driver to get this work?

What drives are you running other than the optane stick?
This was meant as a buffer for a spinner to get the performance closer to SSD. Also it can only be set up to work with the drive the OS is installed on.

I have a Evo 960 256GB as boot drive and a 3TB hard drive.
Yes, for the x299 boards only the boot drive can be boosted, but intel try to hide this.
Intel speaks only from the benefits of the optane and x299 but they dont say directly that second drives are not compatible with x299.
I have purchased one and then i noticed after trying the whole day that it does not work.:mad:
No driver hacks or something to get second drive boost work on x299?
