How to Disable Optane in Bios, and set Disk Controller to AHCI mode

HP Recommended
hp 15-da0073wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

System: Notebook - HP 15-da0073wm

Storage:  1 TB Hard Disk + 16 GB Optane M.2

 

I have disabled Optane in the Intel Rapid Storage app and rebooted.

 

Next, I would like to disable Optane in the BIOS and set the SATA disk controller to AHCI mode.

Unfortunately, I don't see a BIOS option to do so (I have found that option, and used it on numerous other non-HP laptops).

 

Does anyone know how to do this?

@ToneBen Welcome to HP Community!

you changing the optane memory with a storage device, instead? If yes, that may not be an option as optane slots aren't designed for other devices,

That said, here's what you need to know about disabling optane:

note:

The system board requires BIOS version 02.06 or later to install the Intel Optane memory and software driver package. Some PCs were shipped with compatible BIOS but others need to be updated. To find the latest BIOS for your product, go to HP Support, and follow the on-screen instructions to find your product and locate downloads.

  caution:

To avoid permanent data loss, do not disable Intel Optane in system BIOS without first disabling it in the Intel RST application.

Enable Intel Optane memory in the Setup Utility:

  1. Open the BIOS by restarting the computer and repeatedly pressing F10 to enter Setup.

  2. Select Advanced, select System Options, and then select Configure Storage Controller for Intel Optane.

  3. Restart the computer.

Disable Intel Optane memory in the Setup Utility:

  1. Open the BIOS by restarting the computer and repeatedly pressing F10 to enter Setup.

  2. Select Advanced, select System Options, and click Configure Storage Controller for Intel Optane to remove the check.

  3. Restart the computer.

Thank you for your response.

Your BIOS instructions do not seem to match the bios on this machine.

Specifically, you said the bios should be 2.06 or later.  The BIOS on this

notebook has a different numbering scheme... it is "F.22" (as reported in

the BIOS itself as well as in HP Support Assistant).  To help you identify it

the BIOS vendor is "Insyde", the System Board CT Number is: CND84717WK.

 

Secondarily, your description of "Enter BIOS by pressing F10" works, but

"Select Advanced" does not match.  The options available in the

"INSYDEH20 Setup Utility" are Main, Security, "System Configuration", and

Exit.  Assuming you meant "System Configuration", it has the following lines:

Language, Virtualization Technology, Action Keys Mode, Battery Remaining Time,

Boot Options, and UEFI Device Configuration.

 

The logical choice is UEFI Configuration... which has one option "Intel (R) Rapid Storage

Technology",  Selecting that gives a page "Intel (R) RST 17.2.5.4046 RAID Driver",

It has, under the label of "Optane Volume:",  Intel Optane, 931.5GB.  Selecting it

Gives a page with a heading of "Optane Volume Info", showing the following:

   Disable Mode:       Safe

   Size:                         931.5GB

   >Disable

 

   Volume member Disks:

   >Sata 0.0, WDC WD10SPZX-60Z10T0  WD-WX91A98OUF3Y,  931.5GB

   >PCIe 1.0,  Intel  MEMPEK1J016GAH  PHBT838608KN016N, 13.4GB

 

Pressing "Disable", give a page labeled "Disable Optane Volume", with the following:

      Preserve user data:    [X]

     Are you sur4e you want to disable?    <No>

     >Disable

 

Now we come to my puzzle.

If I disable the optane volume, does that switch the "Mode" of the Sata controler to AHCI,

which is my ultimate goal. 

 

To answer your question, I do NOT wish to use the slot the Optane stick uses for storage. 

 

So, to restate it, my question is how do I change the Sata Controler to AHCI instead of RST (or RAID) mode?

I do not need nor intend to continue using the Optane memory.

 

Thank you again.

@ToneBen It looks like the advanced options in BIOS on your device is locked by HP, to prevent changes that may render the device unstable,

that said, you can't change the Sata controller to AHCI due to the reason mentioned above.

 

You may try updating the BIOS and then, check for changes, if nothing helps, its because the options are locked by design.

I hope that helps!
