wonder know my first bay PCI is making 5 bips so it means I have a problem and can't boot anyway so I plug on the second bay PCI. so my question will be X16 or X4 ?

According to the specification for your Z390 Aorus Elite motherboard the slot will work at X4 speed if the PEIEX1_3 is not used. If the PCIEX1_3 slot is used it will only work at x2 speed.

You need to think about RMA'ing the motherboard and see if Gigabyte will replace it, if the PCIEx16 slot is not working, unless of course you have damaged the slot. The later being the case you might want to consider purchasing a new motherboard.
