    Insider Dev Builds of 21H2 and Windows 11 fail to boot on an Asus ROG G703GXR

    ASUS ROG G703GXR..

    Intel Core i9-9980HK

    64GB DDR4

    RTX 2080 - 8GB GDDR6

    Intel Advanced RST controller with 3 x NVMe drives and 1 x 2.5" SSD.

    Any attempts to try insider builds of 21H2 and Win 11 result in hang after post, usb strobe (all USB lights go dark, then come back), a few drive activity blips, then nothing. It does not transition to the "spinning circle of dots" - whatever the official term for that is, I do not know.

    Any insider updates to 21H1 work just fine. Reverting to 20H2, and updating, either directly to 21H2 or Win 11 fail. 20H2 to 21H1 works just fine.


    What was changed in the boot processes for 21H2 and Windows 11 that would cause this kind of issue?

    Attempts to try debug boots caused all kinds of headaches as they fail to log in when they cannot access the PIN or Fingerprint data from the web.

    Finally ended up enabling local password authentication to get around that problem.

    That makes three now

    Another owner with the same problem posted on the Microsoft Insider support forum.

    I am cross-linking the issue from both support forums.

    I am also facing the same issue.

    I have updated to the latest 308 BIOS version. I dont think any newer BIOS version has come out.

    did anyone try deleting the keys from secure boot(BIOS) and installiing?

    Tried resetting all keys to factory = no change, same problem.
    Tried deleting all keys = no change, same problem.

    Resetting all keys to factory defaults left secure boot enabled.
    Deleting all keys disables secure boot.

    Really need an ASUS representative to assist here

    This appears to be a platform specific issue, and one that will cause a lot of grief for ASUS Support if it isn't solved before the release of Win 10 21H2 or Win 11.

    I've also sent this up through an ASUS ROG software beta channel that I participate in, but please, anyone from ASUS, chime in here, and get us the help we need.

    Thanks!!

    We'll take a look, but Insider Dev builds are not official releases so bugs are generally to be expected.

    Does this model have TPM2.0? If not its not gonna happen.
    Needs UEFI boot, TPM 2.0 and a licensed copy of windows registered to a microsoft account.
