Just a FYI guys :) Windows 11 .466 was just released. I'd like to report that it's a drastic increase in the OS responsiveness and usability. Feels good!
Can't install this update too:
2022-01 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 for x64-based Systems (KB5010795)
We couldn’t install this update, but you can try again (0x800f0922)

I will do a clean install of windows 11 tomorrow on an the "empty" SSD and see what happens.

Performed a clean install of windows 11 - all updates installed. I used the Media Creation Tool for Windows 11 installed on a USB stick.
When windows 11 was "initially" installed the WIFI drivers were not installed. I only have WIFI in the house for TV/Internet (ARVIG is the supplier - no "boxes" only WIFI router) so to get past the need for an ethernet/internet connection during windows 11 installation I had to do this:
  • 1. When I reached the “Let’s Connect You To A Network” page, I hit “Shift” and “F10” on the keyboard at the same time. This brought up the Command Prompt, where various commands to control the system can be entered.
  • 2. In this new window, I typed in “taskmgr” and pressed “Enter” on the keyboard. This brought up the Task Manager window so I could see all running processes.
  • 3. I expanded the Task Manager by clicking the “More Details” button, and then found “Network Connection Flow.”
  • 3. Then I selected that process and then hit the “End Task” button.
  • 4. Then I closed the newly opened window and returned to Windows 11 setup, where I entered the local account information.
  • 5. Next I installed the WIFI drivers for the MB and an internet connection was established.
  • 6. Then I finished the Windows 11 installation, updated MB drivers using MSI Center, updated windows and re-installed programs I needed.

BETA BIOS 1.24 ( v12 BETA 4)

is this related to when a computer sleeps then it won't boot back up and a hard shutdown is needed,

I had this issue on a 'MSI PRO Z690-A WIFI DDR4' updates the bios to 7D25v11 and now get CPU to debug hard reset fixes the issue
will this is the issue fully, also when will this be released to the public on the website don't overly trust google drive to get BIOS's

I'm with the stock Bios and don't dare to upgrade, for all the components work as they are supposed to... No ram problems, no sleep problems.
But I still don't get any integrated graphics video signal from Displayport or USB-C. I get video only from HDMI. Tried multiple monitors.. Would you please check if you displayport video output is functional? Thanks!

As I said elsewhere, USB-C may not have DisplayPort (Alt-Mode) feature you find other places like some portables.
However, regarding normal DisplayPort, mine has always worked (4K@60Hz; original BIOS, 1.15 BIOS, and 1.26 BIOS - the first one wouldn't resume XMP after sleep but the later two resume fine). During POST, BIOS config, and Windows 11.

You have a K-model as well?
12700-k. 7D25v11 fixed my sleep issues, but XMP wasn't working and rebooting the computer almost always triggered a "new memory/CPU detected" message. 7D25v126 (Beta version) fixed all of it. Everything seems to be stable so far.

Which BIOS version is more recent: 126 of AA22 ?

Ah, found the answer: the AA22 bios is for DDR5 motherboards.

May I ask you what ram you have? I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but the XMP definetly isn't stable for me.

Does anyone know if the M.2 slots share PCH PCI lanes with sata? I have a WD SN850-500GB and 2 SN750-1TB drives, and a Samsung 840 Pro connected right now. I tried to have my second 840 Pro connected and had lag and weird crashing in win 11 and in the BIOS menu. M.2 slots 1,3 and 4 used and sata 5 and 6 at the same time for this issue. Have sata 6 disconnected and all is fine.
Full system is: PRO Z690-A WIFI DD4, i7 12700KF, G.Skill F4-4400C17D-32GTZR @ 4000(could not get XMP to work even with Bios V1.26) EVGA RTX3080TI XC Ultra HC, EVGA 1600 T2, Win 11, custom wc loop

My ram is CORSAIR - VENGEANCE LPX 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 3600 (PC4-28800) C18 1.35V, and I have been completely stable at stock settings. Running at 3600 no problem using XMP1 profile.

And i5-12600k as the processor? Damn, I have the exact same memory that you have. I guess my only hope is that I accidentally changed some XMP setting that is causing this, or that you don't have the same processor as me. Otherwise I guess there has to be a hardware problem somewhere?
