Fresh install wont boot with GPU (used to work)

Go to solution Solved by pstarlord,

The first thing on my check list is to reset the CMOS and make sure your motherboard's BIOS is up to date.  After that, you could probably just try to reinstall Windows again, maybe something happened during the install. 

Good evening fellas,

 

I replaced my 970 with a 2070 this week. Everything was working fine, the card teams nicely with an overclocked 2600k @ 1440p . Then, since I kinda neglected Windows maintenance for a while, I wanted to do a fresh Windows 10 install, you know, to get rid of all the bloat and really enjoy a fast system again.

 

Said, done. Windows installed just fine, however, started to act up while installing all the initial updates, leaving me with a blank screen while the machine was still on. I figured it had something to do with the GPU, as I wasn't able to install the NVidia drivers just yet.

 

Removed the GPU, left the system running for a few hours, getting all the updates done.

 

Now the weird part: whenever I install a GPU, the system won't boot. It passes POST and simply stops at a blank screen. Remove the GPU  (or set the BIOS to initialize iGPU only) -> straight into Windows. For all cases, the monitor is still plugged into the motherboard. 

 

Happens with both the 970 and 2070.

 

Anyone has ever experienced something similar?

okay, that was quite a pain in the a** because it wouldn't even boot to bios properly but that did the trick. Quite the mess getting everything setup correctly again, but at least the thing is up and running now. (y)
