You didn't reinstall after a cpu swapout? I think that maybe your issue tbh,
save all beloved files and make sure you have drivers for everything and your winkey, then fresh install for the new chip,
It shoudnt be necessary to reinstal windows at all. Resetting your BIOS by removing power then the CMOS battery, press power button and then putting it back should do the trick. Then you would not need to wait. But its fixed so oh well.
