    Default Asrock extreme 4 gen 3

    Hi I updated the bios via instant flash from 1.0 to 1.10. However now the pc won't boot to windows. All I get is the windows repair screen and advice that some driver may be corrupt. I've tried restore point restore but still doesn't boot properly,, have also rolled back bios to 1.0. But still same error message. I'm using windows 7.


    Pis there anything I can do to fix this?

    I have had this very issue. For me, a simple BIOS reset has fixed it every time. Just click the button on the back of the I/O panel, and reconfigure your bios. Make sure your storage settings are on AHCI...

    Sorry if you've already tried this. You didnt mention it.

    You need to set the boot order to the hard drive with windows on it.
    Also, so you know, doing a Windows restore won't help since it only works after you boot into Windows.

    I'll bet any money the hard drive is NOT corrupt, nor any of the drivers. It is a hardware issue.
