    Can't select my HDD?


      Hello! Recently I've been pretty scared to install my Intel Optane due to all the complaints but I finally decided to muscle through all the bios updates and boot priority issues. I've installed the Optane software and let it install, and restart the PC. Now I have the option to "Select Fast Intel Optane Memory Drive" and "Select A Compatible Drive To Accelerate". I can select the Optane module installed but only my boot SSD shows up to select the drive to boost. I'd like to boost my 1TB HDD. But it does not show up. I have shrunk the HDD by 16gb to see if that would help but it didn't.


      Thanks for your time.
