I installed IPM just for curiosity and let it complete the tests, and it worked fine. I rebooted and installed XTU in the hopes I could see what parameters the IPM sets, and when it asked me to reboot, it started the IPM tests again,but it's in a loop and I can't boot into windows anymore, even after cancelling the tests. It seems to be looping on the same test (5.1 GHz), getting a pass, rebooting and starting again.

My setup is : 9700k, 4x 8gb 2400mhz Corsair vengeance, z370m aorus gaming, Kingston nvme ssd a1000.

Any ideas that hopefully don't involve a full format of the drive?

Nevermind, just figured it out. Disabled the new boot option that the IPM creates in the bios and leave only the drive with windows and jt worked.

I made the mistake of installing IPM on the c: drive. For me, it wasn't as simple as changing the boot order. On my MSI z390 board I had to go into the UEFI Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities tab and change the prioritized EUFI partition.
