Just got a 9900k and tried installing it in an AORUS Z390 Xtreme Gigabyte motherboard. The bios boots completely fine but freezes about 5 seconds into booting to windows. I've updated the BIOS to the latest version, reset the CMOS, reinstalled RAM, and reinstalled Windows completely and it still has problems

Think we need more parts,like what kind of cooling and psu=maker+model+wattage.
Make sure your motherboard drivers are also up to date (probably need the old cpu for that). And make sure the cooling is installed well.
Also maybe check the cpu socket for bent pins if the above doeesn't work.

It would freeze and just be stuck, probably indefinitely. The longest I left it was 45 minutes. It's working now though. I reflashed the BIOS again to the latest version and repaired the UEFI within the SSD with the repair option in the Windows Installation Media Tool. Thanks for the help!
