Installed v11 BIOS update using MSI Center and got a black screen when it completed, with the power still on. Tried a reboot - no change. Used Flash BIOS to install v11 and got the same result. Used Flash to install the v10 BIOS and system is back to normal.PRO Z690-A DDR4 and WIFI discussion thread.
Latest official BIOS: v11

That sounds normal. It took mine about 10min to update the whole BIOS. Than once done it turns off to a black screen for about 1-2min to re-initialize.Installed v11 BIOS update using MSI Center and got a black screen when it completed, with the power still on.

I waited full hour after getting the black screen on MSI Center, before rebooting to a black screen.That sounds normal. It took mine about 10min to update the whole BIOS. Than once done it turns off to a black screen for about 1-2min to re-initialize.
I never touch BETA BIOS(s) either. But again it's the person's choice to flash it or not.Sorry, but shady bios links aren't for me, where is official links?
They serious need to sort the bios out, dual booting windows 10 and 11 is a joke, nearly 2 mins to get to desktop with an nvme 980pro if you select the one or the other as it does the whole post and bios process again, combine that with bios constantly forgetting xmp and forcing you to go back in..... It's pretty useless, I need to use wake on Lan and I simply can't as this bios is broken, xmp not working for basic 3200 DDR4, my old z170a was a budget board and has a much quicker post to boot, like 15 seconds on an old SSD compared to absolute best case without issues of 40 seconds with a 980pro nvme with this z690
But I get CPU or memory change warning constantly on power up and that's making it 2 mins or sometimes even more.
It is a big deal since also happens when you shut down from inside Windows 11 anyways. Instead of PC shutting down completely like it did with original BIOS automatically restarts!It is set like that, trust me its the new BIOS. It didn't do it with v10. It's okay not a big deal.
I've been testing Windows 11 vs 10 21H2. I've come to the conclusion that even though Win11 is unpolished I actually do notice a ever so slight speed/performance/zippiness increase of the OS.Good news guys! There actually IS versions of Windows 10 that supports Alder Lake(s) CPU scheduling, We are not stuck to Win11 after all!!
Turns out version 21H2 is the supported version for Alder Lake and the new CPU scheduler, There's a few versions of 21H2. Windows 11 and Windows 10 19044.x
No - used windows update to update from windows 10 to windows 11 on a SSD (Seagate Firecuda 520 1TB SSD PCIe Gen4 X4). Was going to do a clean install but I did not want to re-install programs. I have a new/empty SSD (Western Digital WD BLACK SN850 NVMe M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express 4.0) that I could do a clean install on.It's not a BIOS issue. Was your Win11 a clean install?
