Description of Error Codes listed and steps to resolve the issue


One of the following Error Codes was received when managing an Intel® Optane™ memory device: 0xA0070021, 0xA0080000, 0xA0080001, 0xA0080003, 0xA0080005, 0xA0080006, 0xA0080007, 0xA008001E, 0xA008001F.


The application wasn’t installed correctly, or installation repair is needed.

Steps to Resolve

  • Back up all data/files before proceeding with the steps below.
  • If the error occurred when trying to start the Intel® Optane™ Memory and Storage Management application, the Intel® RST driver/controller software may need to be updated. Find the latest driver.

Step 1: Disable Acceleration (if Enabled).

  • If unable to disable acceleration through the application, this can be done in the system BIOS.
  • In the system BIOS, locate the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology menu.
  • Select the Intel Optane Memory volume.
  • Choose option to deconcatenate.
  • Make sure to select Preserve Data. It migrates the data on your volume back to the higher capacity drive that was being accelerated.
  • Choose option Start deconcatenation.

Step 2: Uninstall related application.
Step 3: Reinstall application.

  • This error can also occur if the drive to be accelerated already contains additional boot partitions or an old RAID volume. These must be removed before proceeding.
  • Antivirus software can also have an effect on the installation of the software. Find more information.
