Asrock X370 Taichi flashed to 5.60, debug code 55

X370 Taichi

1600X

G.skill Fortis 2400

 

I have an Asrock X370 Taichi that was running flawlessly with BIOS 4.80

 

Making sure I have the latest BIOS is like an itch that I just have to scratch, so I went to see what updates were available

 

I noticed that it said 5.80 wasn't suited for Summit Ridge, so I decided on 5.60

 

There were specific instructions that I followed closely.

 

First I downloaded the newest AMD All in one driver

 

Second I flashed to 5.10 without issue

 

Third I flashed to 5.60, but when I restarted the computer wouldn't POST.  It gave me debug code 55 which pertains to memory.

 

I tried to orient my memory differently to see if I could get it to work to no avail.  I tried using a different set of memory but that wouldn't work.  I tried to clear the cmos and it keeps coming up with this debug code 55.

 

The asrock web site says that you cannot flash to a previous version of BIOS once you've gone to 5.60  I didn't notice this originally but that's what it says.

 

I'm not an expert on clearing the CMOS, i'm not sure if i'm missing anything

 

i don't want to do an RMA if I can help it.

take the small circular battery out of the MOBO for about a minute then re-install, and try booting into the BIOS before windows

The battery has been sitting out of the machine all day.  I just reinserted.  Same thing, debug code 55, tried the stick of ram in each of the 4 slots.  same result every time.

 

i can't get into bios at all.

I understand that people probably come here with problems more than solutions, but I'm going to bump this so I can get some help.

 

The ram worked with bios 4.80

The ram worked with bios 5.10

It was the flash to 5.60 that was the start of the "55" debug code, i didn't even touch the memory at that point

 

i cannot even enter bios...it gets hung up rather quickly

 

it says on the asrock website that you CANNOT flash to a previous BIOS once 5.60 has been loaded

 

is there a workaround?

 

yo linus, go tap anthony on the shoulder
