    Error code 0xA0040008 (Intel Optane)

      PC Specs: 8700k Asus Strix Z370F

      Optane Module: 32GB

      I can't activate optane for my secondary HDD. Whenever I try I get the same error Code (0xA0040008).

      I tried googling, but I only saw 2 cases of this error code, and I tried to reformat my drive. Also tried formatting as GPT.

      My BIOS settings should be correct.

      Tried it with Optane Software and also with RST.

       

      EDIT: I saw an earlier post about the same topic, and gave it another shot. Solution: when you try reformatting your drive, you have to delete your storage pool in the storagemanger.
