It's still not detecting my Optane as a compatible disk.
The steps I've taken to get this far are:
1. Purchased a new motherboard with intel Optane 32GB and i7700k Processor (HDD not formated yet...)
-The PC ran fine after assembly
-Downloaded Optane driver (Intel® Optane™ Memory User Interface and Driver for System Acceleration)
-I encountered some errors regarding the HDD so I reinstalled windows. (I did this via windows Settings>Recovery>Reset This PC Erased Everything. Although It did not give me the option to choose with HDD I can install windows in.)
2. Converted my HDD, the one I have windows installed, from MBR to GPT via cmd>mbr2gpt.exe.
-I did this because I was encountering errors with BIOS settings with the Intel® Optane™ Memory User Interface and Driver for System Acceleration installation
-Doing this allows me to boot Windows with Intel RTS
3. For the third time, I installed the Driver again.
-The driver installation was successful
-But it does not detect my Intel Optane as a compatible disk.
(Other things I noticed and did while I was going around this ordeal)
-The Intel Optane was an option to boot up my computer.
-When in Intel RTS mode, the BIOS was not detecting my Optane
-Because of that I also converted my Optane to GPT via cmd>mbr2gpt.exe
These are the steps I've taken so far to get this far
Well, this is a little embarrassing.
Before I called my motherboard manufacturer, I looked at my Mobo's manual one last time. There are two m.2 slots: M.2.1 and M.2.2
I didn't realize that the m.2.1 was for m.2 modules 6gb or less while the 2.2 was for 32gb.
I fixed my issue because of a simple installation mistake, sorry for wasting your time haha! But also thank you for your replies!

Thank you for posting in the Intel communities and for sharing how you fixed the issue.
A similar thing happened with this other user where we went through all the configuration at BIOS and OS level, but it turned out that the module was not connected in the correct port, so changing the port fixed the issue: Re: problem with intel optane memory
