Hey! I forgot that I took a screenshot of the blue screen and that is the same error I get. CLOCK WATCHDOG TIMEOUT.In the BIOS under Settings - Advanced - Integrated Peripherals, can you check if you can disable the external SATA controller? Just for testing, not permanently.
Reason being, the ASMedia controller MSI use for two of the SATA ports seems to cause some problems, see https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?...ck-watchdog-timeout-bsod.371394/#post-2105180
So i wonder if this is part of the issue here as well.
That was it! Disabled the ASMedia SATA controller and I was able to install the Intel Chipset Drivers. I also had a problem with resetting/lockups when installing Corsair's iCUE Software to control my power supply. It fixed that as well!Ok, yeah. That ASMedia SATA controller has been nothing but trouble so far. It causes bluescreens, and the drives may appear as removable/hot-swappable in Windows.
The light at the end of the tunnel is that with a beta BIOS for the Z690 CARBON WIFI, the problem might have been resolved somewhat,
But this beta BIOS is not available for your board yet. I think they will just release a new stable BIOS for that sometime soon instead.
Then at least with that new BIOS, i would enable XMP. Otherwise you'd be losing quite some RAM performance, it would be a shame with your nice system.
