    You will need to use a programmer to flash the bios chip now, please flash this bios file: MS-16L1_GT62VR.rom

    The TS one is not for our eurocom models only for the China ones. Although it shouldn’t make a difference. I believe that your 9700k maybe having trouble working as that is what I ran in my f5 a year and a half ago.

    Have you got any bios programmer at hand?

    Waiting for the programmer to come. Guess I should have waited, but I became impatient.
    I have one back home and have used it many times, but moved to another country.

    Interesting enough this is the last rom I flashed... It seemed successful
    MS-16L1_GT62VR.rom

    The TS bios worked well with my 7700k apart from missing most options.

    Hmm strange, check cpu pins also if the programmer flash doesn’t work...

    OK, turned out to be RAM issue. The 9700K works perfect in the laptop now.
    Now only one of my Ram sticks (16gb@3200mhz|CL22|1.2v) works in only one of the ram slots (Slots 3/4 not tested). :)
    However I still do not have any advanced settings in the BIOS.

    Could the reason be that I did not remove my SATA HDD and NVME during the BIOS update?

    At this point I’d ask @dsanke but I believe this has something to do with the bios not being flashed properly.
