Had this issue for about a year now. I gave up on it but something just reminded me of the issue, so I figured I'd post here.
PC came with the Optane MEMPEK1J016GAH 16GB M.2 2280 PCIe 3.0 x2 NVMe SSD, along with a spinning HDD. Everything worked fine.
About a year ago, I upgraded/replaced the HDD with a 1TB Samsung 870 EVO SSD. It has been working fine, except I immediately noticed that when I installed the SSD, it disabled the M.2 Optane.
The Optane does show up in Device Manager, but that's it. It won't even let me enable write caching on it. Seems like a waste, even if it's only a 16GB drive.
I updated the drivers, firmware, and even the Optane software, but finally gave up.
So, here I am today.
Anyone else experience this issue? If so, has anyone found a fix for this?

I would ignore that and install a normal M.2 NVMe SSD to that slot then use it as boot drive. You wold have nearly the best of higher speed on both drives
