Today I installed Manjaro on a ITX build, as I have dozen dozens of times before, only it didn't work (freezing at initialising ramdisk).
I couldn't work it out, so I redownload the ISO, prepare the USB again, and re-install. Only now it is in a constant reboot loop.
Powers on for about 1.5 seconds, BIOS doesn't post, reboots, again and again.
I have reset the CMOS, and after that it gives the option to *Press F1 for SETUP, *Press F2 to continue. Taking either option just goes back to the reboot loop.
I tried removing GPU, and reseating RAM. No difference.
Is this motherboard dead? Why would installing linux mess up the CMOS?
It looks like mini ITX FM2 boards are a thing of the past too.
