Hello, @The_Virus 

May I ask what prompted you to update the BIOS? Was it due to hardware changes or specific settings?
Could you please confirm if you are able to enter the BIOS but can't access the system, or if you're experiencing a complete boot failure?
If you can enter the BIOS, did you encounter any error messages?
We recommend trying to clear the CMOS and checking again.
Also, please refer to the following FAQs for troubleshooting, and if there's a specific part of the process that isn't working, please let me know which part it is.

Ok, so from your message I see that the BIOS update part went ok - that was the most risky part, everything else is (relatively) easy to fix.

If PC can't boot to Windows, it's possible the BIOS boot sequence changed. First thing to try is to get in BIOS (as PC starts, keep pressing/releasing F2 key or DEL key), and go to Boot section - see if your drive is listed and if it mentions something about Windows. If no boot device is selected - see if the Windows drive is available in the menu. If yes - set to it; if not - you may need to repair windows installation on your PC.

To repair Windows, you would need another PC to prepare a bootable USB flash drive with Win11 on it. Search on Microsoft or on the web how to download the Win11 image file and how to make a bootable USB - Microsoft also provides (free) software for that. Once you have a bootable USB with Win11, plug it in, start the PC and it should start Win11 from USB (if not - configure Boot sequence in BIOS as mentioned above). Then select Repair and Keep Documents - and let the PC do its work. After that, you should have a bootable Win11 and your documents and files should still be there.

Also you might watch a few videos how to use USB for Windows repair. Download Win11 image and software only from Microsoft.
