Your RAM is not directly supported in your motherboards QVL, however, you can probably get it working with some tweaks.
Your RAM was tested for 4000Mhz at 1.4v, you may have to manually set the memory multiplier, voltage, and timings if XMP is not automatically generating the settings.
Try following the guide listed from your RAM manufacturer shown here; https://www.gskill.com/community/1584933243/1646893264/How-to-Enable-XMP-for-DDR4-&-DDR5

Also, a motherboard BIOS update may help depending on how old your version is.

What slots do you have your Memory in? Ensure they're in slots A2 and B2 (see picture) per your motherboard user manual.

In regards to XMP not allowing the computer to boot, can you at least get to the BIOS with XMP enabled?
If so, check the settings that XMP is trying to apply. Look for memory speed (multiplier), voltage, and timings.

Compare them to the specifications of your RAM, which is 4000Mhz at 1.4V
Timings are 16-19-19-39
