mongoled Too late for the OP,

but if you had data you really really needed you could, if you have the parts available to you. Install windows to a different drive and then use something like getdataback from runtime software

Excellent piece of software, saved my arse numerous times!

Just imaged my os from hdd to m2 drive. Kept the hdd as backup. I wish there is an app to just sync files between drives at regular intervals.

If true that you used a beta bios, revert back to the one from manufacturer.

Not a fan of Giga but i've read other horror stories about X570s.

I just booted my computer and everything was gone, all my Windows partitions, everything. *** happened!!

I regret every investment I have made in AMD and their ****ty buggy X570 platform. From day 1 to now I have only had problems instead of a normally working PC. I should have never made the move from Intel to AMD. My experience with AMD's X570 is horrifying.

I'm gonna try to re-install Windows (if at all possible).

Sorry for me ranting, but I'm really pissed.
I'm going to put my money on it wasn't AMD's fault in causing your issues. I'm going to put it on 1 of 2 things

1. The beta bios that you got from Tweaktown (NEVER EVER INSTALL BETA BIOS ON AN IMPORTANT SYSTEM OR FLASH TO A NEWER BIOS UNLESS YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES AND HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTION BUY THE MANUFACTURER). I'm suspecting that this reset your settings (possible that it changed your storage operation type or some other config)

2. You're using a Gigabyte motherboard (research you model, NOTORIOUS for issues)

This is a good lesson for you as well. Backup, Backup, and more Backups! At the least, you should have bought an external drive to back up your data and even a UPS to protect your system as a whole from power fluctuations which can also cause data deletion.

ThrashZone Hi,
Yes memory oc'ing will corrupt an install

First rule is make a system image on removable hdd/... so you can recover it

So your memory.... must of been really messed up

Likely overheated the m.2 970's do get really hot do you have a decent heatsink on it ?
Must >>>>>HAVE<<<<< been.

It doesn't take much, just a BSOD while booting with sketchy timings and poof. The partition is gone. Gotta love drive corruption. Errr...hate. Hate drive corruption.

Darren9 It does usually take a disaster to motivate and unfortunately this seems like a good enough opportunity. Once you've got it back to where you were make an image of the SSD and throw it onto a HDD. Always have a backup

basschilperoord Did a fresh installation of W10, cut the power off for a moment, put everything back on and it managed to boot up again. Everything's gone now though. :'( I'm going to call it a day. I'll update y'all tommorow.

Unstable RAM OC can easily mess with your EFI partition and render the boot drive completely useless (unless you use gpart to rebuild the EFI partition; windows startup repair would probably only work with a previous snapshot). Happened to me once when I was overclocking my previous RAM kit and I decided to just reinstall Windows. It was time for a fresh install anyway since I had cloned it from my previous drive.

You still haven't answered my question: Did the crash occur while Windows was loading or were you already at the desktop/in a game?
