Hello, last night I have tried to reinstall my windows and optimize my pc as best as possible, everything was running fine then I thought it would be a good idea to uldate the bios as well.
After everything was done, I updated it through the ez flash 3, the pc would start but it would get stuck on the logo loading screen. I can get into the bios but whatever I do I am still stuck at the loading screen. I have tried booting to an usb with windows on it, cant get through there either. I ve tried resetting the cmos, resetting the bios to default, but I still can't make it work.
There's no leds on the motherboard to show that something has gone wrong so I really have no idea how to solve this. Any help? Thanks a lot !
Specs if needed: asus rog z490-e

Hmm, I notice that BIOS 2103 mentions "enable ABT for 11th gen i9"

2301 "Support Windows 11 by default"

I wonder if either of these could have caused issue updating past being on a 10th gen and whether you are on W10 or not?

Which bios version should I start going back to?
Thanks a lot !

Looking at the CPU compat list shows the 10700K you are using as being good from the get-go on 0403. The first mention of 11th gen is 2103, so perhaps 1003?
I don't see anything in the notes indicating that you can't go backwards on BIOS, so likely worth trying anyway. GL

Thanks a lot for the replies, now I am managing to go to the windows installing process but every time it just randomly freezes when installing, any idea what I could do about it ? Like sometimes it freezes on getting files ready for installation, other times as i input the activation key for windows. Any idea how I could solve this ? Thanks a lot !

Go back to the same BIOS version you had and stop trying to fix something that is not broke they have been a ton of post that starts with I updated my BIOS now my crap is broke.

EDIT no need to do anything with the memory or CPU cooler nothing changed with that just a BIOS update that went wrong
