I recently was able to grab an Aorus Master 3080TI upgrade for my brother.

He installed it in his system today and it went straight into a bootloop and won't post into windows.
He was upgrading from a 1080TI and worked fine before he pulled it.

We've tried:
Loading optimized defaults
Reseating all GPU components/cables
Will try to re-flash bios next.

System
Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 - Bios 15b
I7-8700K
16gb 3200MHZ ram
850W PSU

Any ideas to help?

Thanks!

When the new GPU was installed, was the system power disconnected? Can you access the BIOS (it isn't clear from what was previously posted)?
Yes, we can access the bios on both the card and the igpu.

We can't even get it into the windows recovery environment, it'll freeze before that.

Looks like it may be a windows issue but I'm not sure how installing a new card would corrupt windows. May have to do a full OS reinstall.
