Epic; perhaps you need to go into the BIOS and select your boot device; if you have yet to install Windows 7; then you need to select your CD Drive or DVD Drive as the primary boot; and your hard drive as the second. You can disable the CD Drive boot later on..but in the interim it won't matter.

Thanks for the rep! But I can't even get into BIOS. Every time I restart my comp it loads to the msi Homepage then immediately reads Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key. Everytime I press a key it repeats the message

During the MSI splash page, it should show something like "hit F4 to enter System Setup" or something similar. Do that, and you'll be in the BIOS and you can select an appropriate boot device, presumably your CD/DVD drive with an OS disc in it.

This is frustrating! i've been researching around and figured out that i need to flash the bios to the new update that supports 6 cores. I downloaded the file to the usb and tried uploading the flash but it hasn't worked yet. any help would be much appreciated!!
