I just installed an Intel i9-9900k on the ROG Maximus XI Hero. Windows is installed on my 250gig Samsung Evo SSD, but now I can't boot to windows unless I do it through the BIOS. Is there some setting I'm missing, or do I need to re-install Windows?

Well how do I do a clean install? I read something about creating my own recovery boot drive. I don't have the product key or anything for recovery.

FYI, I think the OP's problem was with Fast Startup. If Fast Startup fails his computer won't boot, but if he enters the BIOS first, his computer will boot without Fast Startup (probably to allow any changes to take hold) and his computer boots successfully.
