I tried to update the BIOS on a Gigabyte X99-UD4 (rev. 1.1). I flashed the newest version I could find but apparently something went wrong because now my Linux system (PROXMOX VE 7) does not boot and hangs with a strange error – something something agp and scheduler…
When I try to boot a livedisk it errors when booting linux stating that my intel-microcode needs to be updated. How would I do that in those circumstances… is there a trick? Since the one included in the BIOS seems to be too old…
– who has not the faintest clue about BIOSes/UEFIs…
Likely secure boot setting, have you tried legacy or can settings
i know on my asus x570 board it’s listed under boot options as either windows uefi or other os.
If you can enter the BIOS you can try re-installing the update. Also, you can try to reset the BIOS or remove your BIOS battery for a while and then try again.
Those settings do indeed exist but nothing seems to fix the issue. Since I obviously can’t ssh into the machine at this point I have attached photographs of the various errors:

Nevermind, I might be a moron:
I needed to specify EXACTLY what CPU I was using in the BIOS/UEFI and then it just worked again. Probably the Auto option just didn’t work properly after the firmware update. I don’t know why though.
Kind of a wasted week. But I am glad at least that’s solved.
Thank you @GigaBusterEXE, @Azulath and @thetazman
Glad you got it sorted out.
