Also on a Ryzen 7700 CPU... Actually, Windows 11 boot times are quite fast (10 seconds AT MOST) after the TV/monitor actually receives any video signal from the motherboard, which takes a whooping 45 to 50 seconds to happen EVERYTIME.

I've read a lot about it in the last couple of hours. I have 2 32 GB RAM chips installed, tried disabling memory context restore on the BIOS, boot times do not improve. Was unsuccessful into installing the most recent 1.28 BIOS (from, but it gave me a warning about BitLocker or something (I was so upset, I can't even remember), and after a long while of blank screen (same as the initial boot, with the motherboard / GPU not sending any video signal to the TV/monitor) BIOS still displays the default BIOS version (or so I think, it's not 1.28, anyways).

I'm out of ideas. I mean, I've read about how this new DDR5 memories and Ryzen CPU's have issues, but 50 seconds for the computer to send a video signal is just ridiculous.

Please help me.

Bitlocker warning is a textbook thing these days, because a BIOS update can change the fTPM signature. So if you're using it to encrypt anything, things can get hairy. So if you're using Bitlocker, you want to suspend it BEFORE you update your BIOS, and then re-enable it afterwards. If you're not using Bitlocker, then it's nothing to worry about.

I haven't dived into AM5 yet, but my understanding is that the boot times have significantly improved with newer BIOS(es), so I'd definitely suggest you go ahead with the update.

No idea why your update wasn't successful. All AM5 boards have some form of "flashback" function, so it should be safe to flash it to any version, as reverting to any other version should always be possible.
