Had the same problem on an 8100 Elite SFF. Tried every BIOS setting. Tried flashing the BIOS.

 

Turned out it was a RAM problem. I was using 2x 4GB PC3-10600 unbuffered - which should be supported - but it was the problem. Same spec RAM from a different manufacturer solved the problem.

P.S. Does your PC have >4GB RAM by chance? If you had a problem with the RAM above the first 4GB, then you'd have issues in a 64-bit OS but not a 32-bit OS.
