Try clearing CMOS and see if your system will boot up. There is no debug light lit for the CPU?

I also suspect bent pins in the CPU socket. That kind of RAM problem is almost 100% caused by bent pins.

Oooh, there are many questions... 8-))

A. Pure UEFI mode (firmware level) can be activated by setting only Boot Mode Select from LEGACY+UEFI to UEFI with WHQL Support disabled.
Right! :biggthumbsup:
Quote
B. But then it is possible, that a "non-WHQL" driver will be installed and after a restart/cold start the OS won't load.
False! :biggthumbsdown:
If WHQL Support is disabled, all required drivers will be loaded, even those non-WHQL.
Quote
If both of my 2 statements are true, then what's the point/advantage of enabling this WHQL Support???
Point B is false. Nevertheless, know that, sometimes, bugs in bios are resolved by enabling it. I think it is because MSI do all the tests with it enabled...

So it seems this WHQL thing starts to be completely useless to me... Is it correct? Has it any sense? I always download the drivers from the official sites, so I don't care about the verification/certification.
I can't answer for you! ;-))
I can only affirm that set "Boot Mode" at "UEFI" is the minimum to do in all cases.
Have a good day,
:hat tip:

I'm using Team Group 3000 Mhz ram, 32 Gbs on 4 sticks, on XMP profile.

Yes, you can use Svet's app to do that:

I'm using UEFI+CMS.

I have a B450 Tomahawk that is refusing to boot with the cpu in the socket. Cpu is a Ryzen 2600, I have updated the bios with the b1, 17, 18 and it still does not turn on. 

Prior to all this it was working, I went to the kitchen and came back and the pc was off. Took the motherboard out and tested with just the 24 pin and cpu plugged in and was not getting any life.
So I got a new motherboard thinking it was the problem it was not. 

The motherboard will turn on without the cpu in socket, but once I put the cpu in socket and lock it in place it will not boot and there is no light on the motherboard.
I've checked the pins on the cpu and none of them are bent.

Is there anything else that it needs to boot? What am I missing?

Yes, >>my VGA BIOS<< version supports UEFI. This is verified by GPU-Z as well.

Let's see whether I clearly undestand or not:

A. Pure UEFI mode (firmware level) can be activated by setting only Boot Mode Select from LEGACY+UEFI to UEFI with WHQL Support disabled.
B. The OS will install without problem with WHQL Support enabled (no drivers yet, and as you said "Windows must be installed, else nothing is done"). But then it is possible, that a "non-WHQL" driver will be installed and after a restart/cold start the OS won't load.

If both of my 2 statements are true, then what's the point/advantage of enabling this WHQL Support???
It changes 3 another options:
SETTINGS / Advanced / Integrated Graphics Configuration / Integrated Graphics Share Memory [64M] -> [32M] (don't care since I have a PCIe GPU)
SETTINGS / Advanced / Windows OS Configuration / Fast Boot [Disabled] -> [Enabled] (maybe senseless, since >>I have read<< faster boot time with this option disabled)
SETTINGS / Boot / Boot Mode Select [LEGACY+UEFI] -> [UEFI] (can be set separately)
And two additional options appear:
SETTINGS / Advanced / Windows OS Configuration / Internal GOP Configuration (read only)
SETTINGS / Advanced / Windows OS Configuration / Secure Boot (I don't want to use this)

So it seems this WHQL thing starts to be completely useless to me... Is it correct? Has it any sense? I always download the drivers from the official sites, so I don't care about the verification/certification.

Thanks for the reply!

Some questions please:
1) what type of memory sticks are you using?

2) do you know if it is possibly to flash an older firmware version on this board (my version is newer than yours)

3) Do you have UEFI or UEFI+CSM enabled?

This is driving me nuts, haven't had issues like that for more than 10 years arghhhh.

I can't send my original message. It says ACCES DENIED on this server :/ Why?
It happens sometimes on the forum. Characters like Sup/Inf or Bracket can prevent save or it can be also because the post is too long...
Retry later or simplify your post.
Have a good day,
