Stuck in an endless reboot loop. MSI Z370 pro series. I removed battery, jumped JBAT1 for 30 secs, that did not clear the cmos, as the new version is still present. I have tried with 1 mem stick in then both.  And unplugging SSD.

 

I then tried flashing it again with fingers Xed, no luck, tried to clear cmos again by shorting battery and jumper, no luck.

 

System restore was waste of time, I also tried factory reset but it will not pass CMOS page, I enabled clear cmos  in BIOS and that started the constant reboot and disabling it did not stop it.

Hi,

 

After a BIOS upgrade usually the settings revert to default so you must check and adjust all the options as it was before or Windows 10 will fail to boot.

 

Check the UEFI boot mode (UEFI/CSM), Hard disk controller mode (AHCI, RAID,...)

IMO, AMD is a better choice for me. I'm not an Intel hater, but since I started using AMD, I stick with them because they satisfy my needs.
