For someone out there who might also suffer from the same disaster.

A friend of mine has an MSI Modern 14 AMD laptop, for no reason, he suddenly has so much confidence in Microsoft that he manually runs the Windows 11 Sun Valley 2 upgrade. (regardless of how much dark history I’ve shared with him…)



Long story short, he found himself stuck at the secure boot violation error and unable to enter the system after the upgrade; disabling the secure boot option in BIOS is the first thing I suggest to him to try without success also many other troubleshooting steps…

We finally give up at some point and try getting in touch with MSI tech support, before wiping out the entire system, just earlier today we have been directed to downgrade the system BIOS to 112, and BOOM, saw the log-in screen, problem solved!



Thanks for the fast response with the tech support from MSI, they're very supportive.

They said a newer BIOS will be released later to fix the problem, downgrade is only a temporary workaround at this moment, but we're satisfied with what we have for now, at least still having all data.



Even though he still has faith in SV2…, this time, he decided to take it slow.



Here is the download link to the BIOS 112: https://download.msi.com/bos_exe/nb/E14DKAMS.112.zip

Are there instructions for downgrading, inside that .zip download? Thank you.
I had the same problem, the exact same model, a Modern 14 Ryzen 4000, unfortunately had to wipe the storage, but the good news is that I had almost all of it backed-up in OneDrive, though.

There should be an update guide enclosed in the BIOS update file.
Or you can also refer to the tutorial:

It is really the solution to this problem? I'm absolutely worried. I have a modern 14 b4mw too and this was supposed to run windows 11 without issues. Downgrading the BIOS to 112 will make it work?

To be honest, I'm cautious about the 22H2 update and until I'm seeing it in Windows Update, I'm not gonna manually install it again, simply not worth the hassle. It's quite buggy for some users, not just this boot policy error but also other stuff and I think that MS even took it down from the servers, for the time being, until the issues are fixed.

For me, it's even smoother than 10, tbh.
I know it is. But taking in count that I was too close to lose everything and look, it is supposed that my laptop is completely capable of running Windows 11. Windows Update gave me the notification to install it through it. I don't wanna take the risk another time. I have the tpm 2.0, secure boot active and enable, and all the hardware requirements, but the BIOS is trolling me.

Did you update to the 115 BIOS version? and if so, once updating did you reinstall windows on top of that?

I'm having this issue and with the latest windows media file, I'm now seemingly stuck without a laptop for the time being.
Hello! If you have the same problem that cannot use Windows 11 because of BIOS. Try to install the Bios version 115. After I experimented this issue I didn't update the bios neither the windows 11. But if you wanna try, install Bios 115 but if this doesn't work to you, install bios 112 or the first version of bios you find and this would work to recover your laptop (this worked for me)
