I own a MSI MPG B550 GAMING EDGE WIFI AM4 AMD B550 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard. It has an issue where it occasionally fucks up its boot record. Today I learned how to fix it and today I just discovered a new issue. I went into my BIOS to turn back on my HD audio controller and I got a little cocky and greedy and decided to hit the over 4 GB /kryptocurrency mining optimization because my computer runs on 32 gigs of RAM and I was thinking this would optimize it for me boy was I wrong. Then I went to save changes and reboot I went down to boot override and tried to boot directly to my SSD which has my copy of Windows on it. After it boot it gave me a 0xc000000e blue screen of death and when I went back into my UEFI to try to boot back to my SSD my SSD was invisible at least on the boot override my computer saw the SSD, but does not want to boot to it. What can I do to fix this?

that is not what above 4G Krypto is for. its to allow more then 4 Graphics cards to be used by Allocating more memory to the PCI-E pool. Do a CMOS Clear >>Clear CMOS Guide<< and set back up your boot order.

you need to get rid of that above 4G support its not needed unless your running a Cryptocurrency mining rig Stacked with tons of Graphics Cards

Here's the odd thing it's seeing my other SSD perfectly and it would allow me to boot to my other SSD the issue is my other SSD does not have an operating system on it.

Switch BIOS over to CSM and see if you can boot then may or may not work

I did that and I uploaded a new video to the drive and to answer your extremely Australian response before this comment. My Google drive did not exist before I posted my original question.

Did you click on Boot override and change it to your boot drive

Looks like BIOS is in UEFI as that is the default with the new BIOS updates now
To use Crypto over 4G it is mainly used for Smart Access Memory or Rebar support and need a computable GPU to work correctly

You may also want to do a BIOS update via M-Flash

If you're in UEFI mode and something boarks up the boot record on on your SSD, then the BIOS won't list it as a bootable option - even from the boot menu over ride.

Quick fix: Boot from your Windows USB stick.

1 -- In the ‘Windows setup’ page select the ‘language to install’, 'Time and currency format’ and the ‘keyboard or input method’ and click on ‘next’.
2 -- Click Repair your computer.
3 -- Click on Troubleshoot and then select Advanced Options.
4 -- Click on Command prompt and then type (hit "Enter" after each)...
Bootrec /fixmbr
Bootrec /fixboot
Bootrec /rebuildbcd


Then restart.

From here, I would try setting the M.2 slot to PCIe Gen4 instead of "Auto" and if it happens again, try Gen3 ...
