    PCIe SSD for boot drive + HDD on Intel Optane for storage


      I recently bought a prebuilt PC that came with Intel Optane Memory (IOM) to boost a 1TB HDD.

      I also ordered a Samsung m.2 PCIe 500GB SSD.

      With the IOM 'gumstick' already attached, there are still two open PCIe m.2 slots on my mobo. (I am able to use slot 1 without disabling my SATA 2.2 port for the HDD.)


      As the title suggests, I was wondering: If I install a PCIe SSD and make that my boot drive, then format my HDD to use for storage, will my HDD still be boosted by the IOM? Is this possible at all?


      Thanks in advance.
