I have a scenario in which I want to install Ubuntu on a 128GB M.2 SSD, Windows on a 256GB SSD, and use a 1TB HDD for Windows.

I’m considering installing an Optane SSD (32GB) to speed up programs and processes on the HDD. However, I’m worried whether this will cause any complications for my dual boot/Ubuntu system. I would appreciate any advice on this matter.

For reference, my motherboard is a Z390 Aorus Pro with two M.2 M-key slots for SATA or NVMe SSD, my CPU is an i7-9700k, and the storage devices I currently have are a WD Blue 7200RPM HDD, a Samsung 850 EVO M.2 SSD, a Samsung 840 EVO Basic 256GB SSD, and an Intel Optane M.2 2280 32 GB PCIe NVMe 3.0 x2.
