So I booted up my PC when I get an alert from the BIOS suggesting I updated the mobo's firmware. I accepted, after which I was downgraded back to F11 from F13. After this failed update, my computer can't go past the "Aorus" logo screen and the LEDs indicate "A2" before rebooting and doing it again. So far so good, I've tried disconnecting other HDDs, clearing CMOS and doing a hard reset on it, even updating to F14 via Q-Flash, but still the computer won't go past that screen.
Specs:
Aorus Z370 Gaming 7 R1
Samsung M.2 960 PRO 512GB
WD 1TB HDD
Corsair 2x16GB Vengeance
MSI GTX1080
 
Because BIOS flashing is potentially risky, if you do not encounter problems using the current version of BIOS, it is recommended that you not flash the BIOS. To flash the BIOS, do it with caution. Inadequate BIOS flashing may result in system malfunction.

What CPU are you using?

The FW update originally was done by the system itself (it offered to update the FW, after I manually updated to F14, and it downgraded me to F11)
