Memory 2x8 corsair
cmw16gx4m2c3200c16

Core i7 10700k

Strix Z490 E Bios 707

M.2 980 pro 500gb. Yes I know it's a pcie 4.0 and motherboard does not support 4.0 so it will run at 3.0

At first boot getting A2 error code and green boot light is on.

Tried with one memory stick and still get A2

Using vga offered by cpu

You need to be more descriptive of the problem, as well as your configuration if you expect to get some help.

Take a look at this: https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/comments/igfqje/help_rog_strix_z490e_a2_error/
Also post BIOS photo with your boot device(s).

After some research found the easy solution. Plugged keyboard in back of motherboard and not front case usb, which received the magical Asus Bios screen.

Thanks
