I have bought this new system-
Phenom II X6 1055T 2.8GHz
MSI 890GXM G65
Gskill Ripjaws 1600 Mhz 6 GB DDR3 Kit
Powercolor ati radeon 5850 1 gb ddr5 graphics card
Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB
Corsair TX750W
i am facing a very odd problem- when i try to install any os, the system just keeps going into a reboot loop. have tried win xp, win7 & ubuntu with the same results. i have tried removing the graphics card, and using only one ram stick & each time i got the same reboot loop. i am not sure this is a hardware or a software(bios) issue. The bios version is 1.0. PLEASE HELP ME OUT!

Ok problem solved. The issue was because the motherboard bios was unable to recognize the processor. A bios update was necessary. Guys, beware of this. MSI discourages people from trying m flash to update the bios because it fries motherboards. And you will need to update the bios to 1.7. Read up about making a pen drive bootable and then using it to update the bios!
