    Beware of agesa 1.0.0.4B bios not good!

    BIOSes with AGESA 1.0.0.4B caution
    Users are reporting that after updating the BIOS to a newer version that has AGESA 1.0.0.4B, the system won’t boot if you have the Xonar card plugged in the motherboard. This happens with other PCI-e cards as well (#1, #2). Most motherboards brands seem to be affected (BIOSTAR #1, Gigabyte #1+, #2, ASUS #1, #2, #3, #4, ASRock #1). If you have an MSI board, it might be fine to update to a BIOS with AGESA 1.0.0.4B (#1, #2). If you don’t want to go to the hassles of updating the BIOS again to the previous version, you should hold off the update. Also, for some motherboards it is not possible to go back to the previous BIOS (ASUS #1, #2).
    If you’ve updated the BIOS and the system no longer boots, you could try this: remove the sound card, start the PC and enter the BIOS, look for a setting a called “Initial Display Output” or similar, set it to the PCIe slot in which the main video card is plugged in, save settings and shut down the PC, reinsert the sound card and see if system boots. If it does not, remove the sound card again and revert back to the previous BIOS.
    If you run into these issues you could contact your motherboard support letting them know of the issue.

    It is a Sound Blaster AE-9 and not a Xonar but maybe still useful information.
    ASUS X570 ROG STRIX E-GAMING – 1404 (AGESA 1.0.0.4 Patch B).
    With my AE-9 my system will boot, but it takes ~5minutes. After reaching Windows the system is not usable for ~3 – 5 minutes. (CPU usage 100%). After that everything “works”, but the Sound Blaster AE-9 is not recognized.
    During boot I cannot enter BIOS. The Sound Blaster logo is lit for around 5 seconds, then the light goes off. My mainboard hangs at status code 92 for a while (PCIe BUS initialization).
    I received my ae-9 yesterday, so I had no opportunity to test prior 1.0.0.4. I tried several things (i.e. GEN1 for my PCIe slots).
    the AE-9 works just fine on my old ASUS Z170 PRO GAMING.

    Almost same problem but with Prime X470 Bios 5220 (Agesa 1.0.0.3 ABBA) and BlasterX AE-5 - system boot with double start (pressed power button - system starts - turned off after 2-3 sec. - then auto-starts - and boot normally). I noticed that if set the audio card in PCI-E(2) (which with x8 speed) and set in the bios: Advanced - Onboard deviced configuration - PCIEX16_2 Bandwidth: PCIe RAID Mode - the system starts normally always but GPU works in PCI-E x8 and it's not good.

    I can't find this option in my Asus TUF x570, any help? Thanks.

    I can confirm this problem on a ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (wifi) with an AE-9. System would boot eventually (about 5 to 10 minutes) but even when booted, it would stutter and freeze every 30 seconds. Also Windows 10 took about 10 minutes to fully load up everything (tasktray items).

    Removed my Sound Blaster AE-9 and the problem disappears. BIOS flashback to previous BIOS also fixes issue.

    I'm going to sit on the older bios until some update/guidance is given.

    After 3 minutes of reCAPTCHA screening - TWICE!!, I almost forgot what I wanted to say. . . Oh yes, I'm pleased I didn't update my board to the latest BIOS listed after reading tthe recent posts here. I hope the situation is soon sorted. My system is quite stable at present.

    Hello,

    Just updated to the new bios version:

    Version 5406 2019/11/2514.65 MBytes
    PRIME X470-PRO BIOS 5406
    Update AM4 combo PI 1.0.0.4 patch B

    And got in a lot off trouble, storage devices reacted slow, LAN adapter didnt work, and my Creative AE-5 didnt work!
    When i looked in Device manager i noticed an error in my ASMedia device and varios other USB controller error's.
    Also loading of my Ryzen Master didnt work!
    Finally cleared the CMOS and reflashed the previous bios again (phew!).

    When i google around, i found more people experiencing these problems with other mainboard brands and the 1.0.0.4 patch B update.

    Sys specs:
    AMD 2700X
    Prime X470-PRO
    2x8gb
    2x16gb
    Creative AE-5
    Samsung evo 960

    Exclamation

    Confirmation!

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X
    ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Formula
    Creative SoundBlaster AE-7

    For completeness only:
    MSI RTX 2080 Ti
    2 x 8 GB g.skill TridentZ RGB PC3200 CL14
    be quiet Dark Power Pro 11 - 1200W

    Yesterday a 3950X with a Crosshair VIII Formula put into operation, directly installed AEGSA 1.0.0.4 B (BIOS 1105) and since then no longer come into Windows or the system takes 5+ minutes to boot and, of course, the entire system is useless.

    The sound card used is a Creative SoundBlaster AE-7 and does not work in any PCI Express slot, as soon as it is plugged in wherever, nothing works here anymore, or the system is blocked.

    I hope the problem can be solved quickly, the error is also very easy to reproduce in the sense.
