Aorus MOBO updating BIOS caused OS error.

Hey All,

AORUS XTREME GEN 1

ThreadRipper 3970x

I woke up this morning to an error on my AORUS XTREME Mobo and it would not post. Long story short I had to take out and re-sit every RAM stick, GPU and memory to be able to get it to post again. So I had to re-install Windows again.

 

The problem,

I was looking at the BIOS ver and it was well out of date and there was quite a few hardware compatibility issues being addressed in the updates since the version I had. So I updated the BIOS from Windows, which is recommended by GigaByte. But now I can't get into Windows and each time it goes to load it reboots back to the BIOS. Can someone tell if they have also had the same issue? Was the issue that the BIOS was so out of date that Windows was not able to boot with the new one? B/c the BIOS layout is COMPLETELY different to the one it came with.

 

Needless to say I am doing a clean install, so I am not asking for a solution.

Cheers

That is harsh. Although, I can sort of understand that it would put the OS out of wack. Glad to know that is was not just my incompetence.
