How to clone optane accelerated system onto Samsung EVO 970 NVME drive

Last Modified: 2019-12-18
My client has an HP Omen 880-1xx desktop pc running Windows 10 home. This has 16GB of Intel Optane memory and a 2TB regular mechanical hard drive.  I want to replace this with a Samsung NVME drive that will go into the Optane memory slot.  I'm thinking I will create an image of the current configuration onto a regular Samsung 860 EVO SSD then clone that drive onto the NVME drive.  I tried booting Acronis True Image but that did not see the Optane accelerated C drive. Are there any tools or a procedure that will allow me to do this?
