After successful BIOS Update, Windows won't start

Hi guys!

I just flashed my bios before trying to OC my new RAM and, as said, now Windows 7 won't start. Bios update seems successful, I can access it and the new version is written.

Any idea? I'm guessing clean install but looking for some idea before that.

i5 2500k on Gigabyte P67-UD3 if it's any help. The bios update was from F3 to F7.

Thanks!
Tam

  1. Found the answer somewhere on the forum given by Wamphryi.

    The idea was to switch the sata controller from IDE to ACHI or ACPI. Still don't know why, but it worked!

    Hi :)

    It worked because when you flash a bios it RESETS ALL settings to default.... there are some other settings you should change as well...

    All the best Brett :)

    If you installed Windows using that setting, it won't boot if it's changed to something else, which the BIOS update did.
