Sounds like the UPS is defective.

When power drops out you can't be sure what many PCs will do. At best they power off. Sometimes they'll restart or just hang.

Your UPS sounds defective. Try a better one.

Possible your BIOS got reset to default values

Go into the BIOS settings during POST time, before Boot, and change it to NOT restart after power outage.
