Windows 8.1 Infinite Recovery loop post Bios update

Hey everyone.

I updated my bios for my ASRock Pro 4 Z87 mobo to 2.00 and it flashed perfectly without failure. After doing the mandatory reboot it went into the endless loop saying there were issues with a certain file on my G drive (not my windows installation drive). I can post the exact error if you need it.

Anyone got suggestions. If possible i'd like to avoid reinstalling Windows on the C drive as my Data limit is low and I just installed some important large programming files.

Any more details required just post here.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Did u try to reset the bios using mobo switch or taking off the battery?
    If the problem still persists whats the error message?
  2. No I haven't reset it. Should I?
  3. Well that shouldn't be question then.... try reseting the bios first then send the error if still appears.

    Yes.
    I wonder if the issue could be related to the UEFI security setting. If you had Windows installed in UEFI mode, then flashed your BIOS it may have defaulted to Legacy. So, it may be a matter of putting your settings back correctly.

    BOOT ORDER is another possibility. Make sure your Windows drive comes before any other SSD/HDD. I have my DVD drive first, and my Windows drive second.

    I'd also try running MEMTEST which not only tests your System Memory but also tests if you can boot an Operating System successfully.
