    Can't Boot into BIOS

    I've tried every suggestion I've found on the internet, but no luck...

    Windows 10 lastest update. MSI Gaming Pro Carbon board with Ryzen 7 1700, using Ryzen power plan. When I first built this board I turned off the annoying MSI BIOS splash screen on startup, and now I guess I'm on Fast Startup. Which apparently is part of the problem, the handoff from BIOS to OS is too fast to recognize any key press.

    The magic key to boot into BiOS is DEL. But it doesn't work. It just goes to Windows.

    I've tried hitting Shift with restart, then holding DEL before turning computer on. No luck. I've tried tapping DEL as fast as I can. No luck.

    No way to turn of Fast Startup, contrary to a lot of advice on the internet. Maybe it's the Ryzen power plan, or latest W10 that makes that unavailable.

    Now I don't want to do anything fancy or dangerous, since I don't really need to go into BIOS for anything important. Other than re-enabling the BIOS splash screen so I don't go thru this again next time.

    Anyone know of a simple, magic keypress? Thanks.

  3. MSI bios boot logo (frozen?)

    I don’t think I see an option to do that. I checked both boot and advance settings. On the top shows “aptio setup utility” and I think it’s ver 1.4 since I see it in advance settings. But other than splash screen option, I don’t see it. :/
    Maybe I should update bios if available?

    Windows 10 will only boot if selected from the BIOS boot menu.


    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    We understand the inconvenience you have experienced.

    • You mean to say, every time you need to make changes to Boot Order in BIOS, to start your computer correctly?
    • What is the make and model of your computer?

    I suspect that the problem might be due to outdated BIOS update
    or with Boot Configuration data. Suggest you to check for the latest BIOS update and Chipset drivers for your device hardware on Manufacturer website. If you find a new one, try to update the same to see if it correct
    the issue. If problem still persist, then I suggest to rebuild Boot Configuration Data to see if it makes any difference.

    Let us try to repair your computer by creating a Windows 10 Bootable media (I.e. USB or DVD) using
    Media Creation Tool.
    Use your computer or some other connected to Internet for creating a Bootable media (Windows 10 ISO image file). Once you're ready with Bootable Media, follow the below mentioned

    • Insert the Windows installation disc in the disc drive or connect USB media, and then start the computer.
    • Press a key when the message Press any key to boot from CD or DVD appears.

      If your PC does not detect the media automatically
      • During the restart process, read the screen for any instructions that explain how to interrupt normal startup and enter the basic input/output system (BIOS) setup utility. Most PCs use the F2, F10, ESC, or DEL key to begin the BIOS Setup.
      • Look for a tab in the BIOS Setup Utility that is labeled Boot Order,
        Boot Options, or Boot. Following the directions on the screen, use the arrow keys to go to the
        Boot Order, then press Enter.
      • Locate the CD, DVD, or USB flash drive (this might be called Removable Device) in the Boot list. Following the directions on the screen, use the arrow keys to move the drive up so that it appears first in the Boot list. Press Enter. The boot order
        sequence is now changed to boot from the CD, DVD, or USB flash drive.
      • Press F10 to save your changes and to exit the BIOS Setup Utility. Select Yes in the confirmation window. The PC will restart. Allow the PC to restart normally. The scan will take a few minutes and remove any malware that may be infecting your computer.
    • Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next.
    • Click Repair your computer.
    • Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click
    • On the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot. Select
      Advanced Options > Command Prompt
      under Advanced Options.
    • Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd, and then press
      This command will rebuild boot configuration data if in case any issue with Boot files causing this issue.

    Once you done with the above steps, see if the problem still persist.

    Let us know how it went.
