So I switch my Z490ftw to a new case and in doing so the bios went back to version 1.03. At first I Thought I accidently hi the bios select switch, but when I switched the bios it had version 1.01. I switched back to the other bios and sure enough it was 1.03. So I had to reflash it back to 1.10. All of my hardware stayed the some. For the life of me I cannot figure out what the heck happened. Has anyone ever seen something like this happen?

    either wmmills hit the nail on the head ... Or ... your original flash never took / completed ... though usually that would leave you with a No Boot issue

    Doesn't the Z490 FTW have dual bios? Maybe it got switched during the move?    Never updated the old one?
