    XMP profiles are just a quick way to set the memory settings, that can be done manually by the user.

    Just set the memory speed to 1866 and the timings will be on Auto, and boot the PC. If that works you can then use CPU-Z to check the SPD memory specs and set them yourself.

    What speed does the memory run at without the XMP profile?

    What exact model of Corsair memory are you using?

    We don't know what BIOS version you are using, but I suggest you flash your BIOS to a new version, or the same version again. It is possible that your BIOS was corrupted, which is why you lost the ability to use the XMP profiles. If you do try to flash the BIOS, use the Instant Flash method, since the Windows update method tends to cause the most failures, and Instant Flash is very reliable.

    I don't see your model of Corsair memory (CMY8GX3M2A1866C9) in your board's memory compatibility list. That means it may not work correctly in your board.

    If the memory is not compatible, the first time you started the PC with the memory, you were able to select a XMP profile, but that was before a full system POST, which then caused the changes in the BIOS due to an incompatibility. A Windows installation cannot affect the way memory is recognized or controlled in the BIOS.
