Unable to install Windows 11 Pro on a Rog Strix Z90-E Gaming Wifi II

Level 8

Good morning


1 x G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB (2 x 32GB, 6400 MHz, DDR5 RAM, U-DIMM)
1 x Crucial T700 (2000 GB, M.2 2280)
1 x ASUS ROG STRIX Z790-E GAMING WIFI II (LGA 1700, Intel Z790, ATX)
1 x Intel Core i9-14900KS (LGA 1700, 3.20 GHz, 24-Core)

I did my assembly and installation under Windows 11 pro, put in the key and installed my software and made a backup of the system.

So far only happiness.

Then I told myself that a nice 32/9 screen would be great. So I immediately bought it.

But since then, nothing to do with the screen, succession of blue screens. I restored my backup and nothing works. Still blue screens. I noticed at least 10 different codes.

I told myself that one of the components was defective so I needed to do some testing.

Memtest86 found no problems, 8 hours of scanning and a scan with 16 processors.

I tried to install Windows 10 Pro, but failed. Only Linux works.

I tested the processor with Stress-NG to see if the processor crashed but again nothing.

I tested the GPU of the same processor, just zero fps because no driver installed on Linux.

I did a brief test of the SDD and again nothing tangible because I am currently testing it.

I did a bios reset and reinstalled the latest bios and there it told me that my machine was not compatible with Windows 11. I had to manually redo the two compatibility options: TPM and Secure boot.

Does anyone have an idea and especially a feelback of this motherboard?

Hi @jeannoellayat 
Sounds like you're having a bit of a rough time. Can you confirm you're not enabling XMP overclocking? First things first would be to rule out any instability.

No XMP setting. The default bios.


1. Install one memory module in slot A2

2. If Crucial T700 is currently connected in M.2_1, move to another NVMe slot.

3. Reseat CPU and cooler. If using a contact frame, revert to the stock retention mechanism. Check the CPU pin-pad and socket for any debris. Ensure even mounting pressure as per cooling vendor instructions.

Apparently I received a damaged card. The socket is damaged. View the photo. That's it, I'll start there. But no see debris.

@jeannoellayat If you TURN OFF Fast Boot and Logo Display does that help avoid these BSD? See for reference.
