    Crosshair VIII Formula giving HDD 02: Detect HDD message unable to fix

    Hello, I recently purchased the brand new AMD Ryzen 5950x and the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Formula motherboard. Both of these are brand new. I have set up my computer and made sure all the cabling and wiring are correct, which they are, and when I go to boot the system the monitor shows a blank screen. There is also an error message or code that says Code: HDD 02: Detect HDD. I have two m.2 drives in at the moment and I unplugged all my SATA drives and the message still pops up(Windows is on one of the m.2 drives).

    I checked to see if anything was wrong with the socket or if the CPU had any bent pins but I can't see to find any when I zoom up to it really close with my camera and flashlight.

    Here are my specs:

    AMD Ryzen 5950x
    ROG Crosshair VIII Formula
    64 GB of g.skill Trident RGB RAM(compatible)
    EVGA RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra(brand new, first time using)
    1 TB m.2 960 Pro Samsung drive
    2 TB m.2 970 EVO Samsung drive
    EVGA 1600w power supply
    WD Black 5TB Performance HDD -7,200 RPM SATA 6GB/s 128mb cache (unplugged at the moment)
    WD Green 4TB IntelliPower HDD - 10,000 RPM SATA 6GB/s 64mb cache (unplugged at the moment)
    2 x 860 Samsung EVO SSD SATA 4TB (unplugged both at the moment)

    I have also tried resetting CMOS and that didn't seem to do anything either. Any ideas on what I could do?

    Thank you for your help in advance!

    02 means it's sitting in BIOS I think...check your display chain...gpu... cable... monitor

    Maybe flash latest BIOS ....BIOS flashback method

    That seemed to work(update BIOS via flash back), along with replacing a faulty displayport cable. The computer now POSTS.

    Thank you!
