Nexus 5x Boot Loop

Last Modified: 2017-04-10
Dear Experts,

My nexus 5x is Stuck in a boot loop after I did the update to 7.1.1. I can't boot into Android. I have locked Bootloader, USB Debugging is not enabled.
Is there any way to Flash a Factory rom to the device somehow? I don't mind losing the data on it, I just want to get it back running.  
I googled the issue, but everything I found needs the phone to be able to boot into android and Unlock the Bootloader and enable USB Debugging on the Device. Which I can't do anymore.
Every tip is very welcome.
I can access the "recovery mode" and also a "Download mode" seems to be accessable. But both options haven't helped me ruther so far.

Many thanks for the help and Best Regards,
