AMD Ryzen 5 1600 and MSI B350m Gaming Pro, taking a long time to post

I just bought an R5 1600 and B350m Gaming pro mobo. For the first boot up, it took almost 5 minutes for the monitor to receive any signal. Now it takes about 10-20 seconds for the monitor to receive any signal before the computer can actually start up. What to do??

RAM: ADATA XPG Z1 2400mhz 8gbx2
GPU: Nvidia GTX 970
1 SSD and 1HDD

Also the Windows 10 Enterprise(booted from the SSD) hanged randomly and permanently, and other times I get the BSOD CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT seemingly randomly.
Tried a clean install of Win10 twice but it did not fix it so I am now reverting to my Win7 Ultimate 64-bit(I am in the process of reverting so I will update soon what happens).

BIOS is up to date to v26(latest).
Did not OC the processor at all.
Using stock cooler 65W.

Please help!!

  1. Well AMD Ryzen takes super long to post! It's completely normal for it to take a long time . Dont worry about that . Now for the blue screen I honestly have no idea. Update back once your done

  2. Ok, I reverted back to Windows 7 and so far no more BSODs or hangs :)

    I don't know, but maybe for some reason my SSD was not handling Win10 very well :P

    Are you sure it's ok that the display remains off for 10-20 seconds after I press the power button on the Cabinet?

    No its not OK, this issue was fixed with a bios update, so update your bios to start with, just flash the latest one: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B350M-GAMING-PRO.html#down-bios

    Also after updating clear the bios using the jumper on the motherboard to get rid of old config data.

    And that's probably why you having all these issues. Update the bios to the newesr version like he said and then reset the bios. Then you should be able to try Windows 10 . The Ryzen chips due take longer to post than others. Its completely normal.

  5. The BIOS is already the latest version...

    I cleared the CMOS using the jumper first and then by removing it altogether then reinstalling but the problem still persists.

  6. You could try the new beta here https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=283344.msg1615515#msg1615515

    I don't normally flash beta bioses, but I flashed the one for my msi board last night and loving it.

  7. What is the worst thing that can happen by flashing a beta Bios?

    And will I be able to revert it?

  9. Nah, msi arnt really like that, they don't really release the betas until they are pretty stable, I know the Tomahawk and titanium beta bios came out about 2 weeks ago, there were a couple of issues with it, and they've been sorted in new versions of the beta, then yours and mine came out yesterday, I guess the Tomahawk and titanium were the testers, I'm loving the new bios, not had a problem since I flashed it, and tonnes of new options.
