    Cold Boot Q-Code Ad


    I use an Asus Rampage V Extreme and a Samsung SM951 512 GB M.2 SSD as well as a Crucial Ballistix Sport DIMM Kit 32GB, DDR4-2400 RAM.

    Every time I boot the PC with it having been cut off from power, I get the Q-Code "Ad" and Windows 8.1 does not load. Pressing the reset-button results in a normal boot with a Q-Code of "AA" and Windows loads regularly.

    If I just turn the PC off without cutting it off from the power and reboot, then the PC boots with a Q-code of "40" or "AA".

    I just installed the new BIOS 1402 and even disabled fast-boot but I still have the problem that Windows does not start after the PC has been cut off from power with the mainboard showing the Q-code "Ad".

    I would really appreciate it if someone could help me.
