So recently I bought an i7 9700 to upgrade my CPU. After putting the CPU in and booting up my computer, I get stuck at the motherboard loading screen. I have a MSI B370M motherboard. Sometimes it gets stuck on this screen with an additional message "Preparing Automatic Repair". Initially there is a wheel that spins but after about 5 second, it just freezes. I have tried resetting my CMOS by removing the motherboard battery and putting it back in. I get stuck at the same loading screens.

When I put in my old CPU (I5 8400) my computer is able to start up fine.

I updated the BIOS prior to the update.
Any ideas?
