    Bootloop after RAM upgrade. Reset BIOS?


    The machine is MSI Titan GT80 SLI.

    I triple boot Windows 10, Windows 10 and Ubuntu.

    I had 3x8GB RAM modules installed. I added one 1x8GB for the total of 4x8GB of RAM. Ever since then the machine start bootlooping. It goes to the bootloader, to the entry that I created with bcdedit and then does not boot and repeats the cycle.

    Both Win10 disks do that. They are identical.

    My 3rd disk has Ubuntu on it, it boots and sees the 32GB installed. No issues.

    I can get to the BIOS, it can see 32GB of RAM.

    I get into Ubuntu Linux by hitting F11 during the boot cycle and then selecting the Linux SSD.
    I used to be able to do that for the Win10 disks, both of them and no longer can.

    I've read that I have to reset CMOS, is that so and if so, how? Via BIOS or via jumpers?
    I just don't want to break anything on top of this.

    The assumption is that the cause is the newly added RAM.
    This may or may not be correct.
    These are some trial and error steps:

    1) Remove all RAM modules and re-seat one module.
    Remove the power cable and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
    2) Power on

    3) These are links for resetting the BIOS:

    No. It hits the bootloader entry and then quits out of it and repeats the loop. It bootloops.
