Trouble booting after BIOS update. - Windows 7

This could end up being confusing and inefficient, if not counter-productive.

Perhaps it might be advisable to work on a difficult issue in only one place at a time?

But, it's up to you all and to the OP, if you want to carry on simultaneous, parallel, duplicate threads in two different venues...

Make sure its in AHCI mode and not IDE mode for example. Also check the boot order to see if your hard drive got shuffled down the list. It may be trying to network boot, then boot from the optical drive, etc. That will slow down the boot process as each option is tried before it moves on to the next one in the list.
That`s exactly what I would think the issue is.

Although, I`ve flashed mine twice now and my OC settings, XMP etc were untouched.

And whatta ya know, another Bios out for the Asus Z170 version 3007

I've flashed my ASUS laptop a few times, easyflash from the BIOS. I can't remember if any settings were lost of changed though? The last one was a few years ago now.

Ive checked around, the only thing above the hard drive in boot order is the DVD drive, which I think is normal. I will do it again when I get home. I will try to reinstall windows to see if I can boot into Windows.

How did you flash the BIOS? With a program inside windows, from BIOS app or from DOS mode?
Are you sure it was the correct BIOS for the new MB?

I downloaded an exe file and procceded to install it. I thought it was. I bought the same motherboard that came with the PC originally, and couldnt find bios update anywhere else so I procceeded to download it from HPs website

What did you see on screen when you ran it? Sounds like you ran WinFlash. You do know what the difference is between a BIOS Flash and a driver update is right? You also made sure it was for your make and model motherboard right? In case your not ware of it, Flashing your BIOS is a big deal. Doing it incorrectly can turn it into a fancy piece of wall art.

Agreed, if you don`t need the bios update or if you are inexperienced at flashing the Bios, then leave it alone.

With that said, can you get into your Bios now ?

Is the problem strictly with windows not booting ?
