Please help I'm having a weird boot failure loop issue. This happens when at default settings and overclocked. I am on the F5 bios.
At first the PC normally boots just fine, works fine, and etc.
Then I started getting this endless boot failure loop.
Boot for about 20 secs
Get to Debug code "db"
Boot for about 5 secs
Get to Debug cod "9A"
Repeat over and over
db - Flash Update Failed
9A - USB Initalization is started
This seemed to happen after I shut down and unplugged the power or turned off the power from the PSU. I do this when I need to change something on my PC.
However it seems to happen more randomly now. Like just after a shut down.
To fix it I would basically just shut it off and leave the power unplugged for a few minutes and try again. This would often take multiple attempts so I'm not sure it really does fix it. I have also tried resetting the CMOS which seemed to fix it once, but I continued to run into the problem. I ran into this issue with the stock F3 bios as well as the newer F5. If anyone has any ideas I am open to them.
