MSI 760GM-P23 (FX) won’t load Windows 7 without a BIOS upgrade


I kept going into an infinite loop where a new MB for a client media center would load install files, reboot, and do it again. Fortunately these MSI boards have an easy flashing utility in the BIOS that can access files on a thumb drive. I went to the MSI site and pulled down the latest BIOS file for the machine and now it seems to be installing Windows properly.

The file is: 7641vHF.zip. Just copy the files in it to a thumb drive, plug it in, boot the machine, go into the BIOS, and use the M-Flash tool.

A link to the file is here: http://www.msi.com/service/download/bios-20821.html

Next time I will try the BIOS upgrade first and save a lot of other fruitless troubleshooting.
