All is good except I need to update the BIOS. There is a MB LED flashing indicating a primary boot failure. Never done this but have looked around to determine the BIOS flash process. I have created a bootable USB flash pen drive having both the system files and files to initiate the bios flash.
I have gone in to my BIOS to change the boot priority. I have tried to boot 3 times so far where the device in the BIOS (for 1st boot) was 1st attempt - USB DVD/CD, 2nd attempt - USB Floppy, and 3rd attempt - USB Hard drive. On all 3 boot attempts my system boots off the hard drive normally going in to Windows.
Any ideas why?
BTW - I was using the MSI Live Update before going through this process. There is a ClickBIOS file it tells me to download, yet when I download and install it an error message comes up saying this file is not needed for my MB.
Later I went back in to my BIOS and chose a maybe two other boot options (other than the obvious HD or CDR, etc. options). There was a 3-letter acronym that I chose to boot from (i am away from my system so cannot confirm it); the system booted in to DOS and there was this weird mapping diagram displayed. I tried to mess with it but it did not work, and i typed EXIT to get out. After doing this the C:\ came up and i followed the process below to re-flash the BIOS.
But before this I went to youtube to learn how to make the bootable flash drive. There are several. This link was the basic process I followed, though this has more to do with how to flash the bios. It showed me how to get the correct files needed to update the BIOS.
