Stuck in BIOS!

Hi! I recently did a clean install on my pc, and everything went well, but I saw I had an outdated BIOS version so I decided to update it using Gigabyte’s Q-flash. Then, something weird happened when it finished. It rebooted 2 times, but couldn’t go to windows and left me at the bios. No biggie, I thought. I took out the usb card for the bios and the windows 10 disc I used for the clean install because I thought I wouldn’t need them. I retried booting to windows but it still didn’t work.

I then tried to install the usb card and the disc to give me as many boot options as possible, but all of them only try to boot for 2 seconds and then they come back at the boot menu/bios. I couldn’t resintall windows, and someone told me it’s because windows will not work when the bios is corrupted. So my question is, how do I get to boot to Windows? Were there any automatic backups I could use?

Edit : I have a 4tb hard drive with a 32gb optane. I used a 16gb usb drive to install windows. My motherboard is a Gigabyte z370 AORUS gaming 5. Here is a video of what happens when I try to load each boot options :

Reconfigure the boot device.
GBT installed windows should appear as "windows boot manager: xyz".

Did you install windows from GBT or MBR? MBR is legacy.
You may to reconfigure CSM support.

Thanks for the response. I have tried both with and without CSM. I also reseted the BIOS with a screwdriver. I edited my OP to show what happens when I try loading the boot options.

I don't know how to help you. Sorry.
You PM'd me asking to reply. So here's your reply.
But what am I supposed to do? i don't own this motherboard nor have I ever encountered nor even seen such a problem. Most I've ever heard of are people installing windows to MBR formatted drives and trying to boot to GBT which fails. So anything I say is either going to be wrong or not working. Looks like you have the same drive (Some seagate thing?) shown as both as boot manager and as a normal drive. Looks like your windows install didnt work right.

I say you just reinstall windows from USB or DVD. I can't do more for you. Sorry. I'm not an OS person.

I had a very similar issue recently on an intel X99 setup while experimenting with different drives and such.




I ended up shutting down, removing all drives (sata/usb/m.2), clearing CMOS by switching PSU off, removing battery, and also pressing and holding CLR CMOS button for 10 seconds.


Restor power, boot into BIOS.


load optimized defaults, save and exit.


boot into BIOS, adjust date and time.


find BOOT tab, look under setup mode for a button called SECURE BOOT.




you want to clear/unload/delete all the keys.


You should see things like PK, KEK, DB, etc..
BEFORE DOING THIS---- MAKE SURE you have an option up top called "INSTALL DEFAULT KEYS"


If you have this option, go ahead and on each key spot, press the delete otpion.


After done, hit install default keys.


F10, save and exit.


while back in BIOS, verify there are keys present in the boot section you just were in. If all good, hit power button to shut down.


Toss your drives back in, and see what happens.


You may need to play with the BOOT menu in BIOS to restore booting ability. maybe UEFI only, or find something like "both Legacy and UEFI"

Your board also has dual-bios you could try switching to the backup bios.
