    Installing Optane for Seconary Drive - Error: 0xA001004B the last partition on my system drive cannot be resized.

      I have an Intel SSD boot drive (SSDSC2KW512G8) and a 6 TB traditional secondary (WDC WD6003FZBX-00K5WB0) drive. I'm trying to install Optane for the secondary drive.

       

      • Gigabtye Z370p D3 Motherboard with the F5 BIOS from July of 2018
      • 64-bit Windows 10 Home
      • 32 GB Optane MEMPEK1W032GA

       

      I've converted both drives to GPT, Set the BIOS to UEFI and left 100 MB of unallocated space at the end of both drives (just to be safe). Since the first drive is EFI the EFI partition is at the end, but I am installing to the secondary drive, so I hope that isn't an issue.

      The Optane installer gives me error 0xA001004B that the last partition on my system drive cannot be resized.
