Msi z77a-g65 issues

Hi guys

Well, I got an issue with mobo boot for my new build. There's a commands I dont really get. It's first time I see such thing for a new build.

EFI shell version 2.31 [4.651]
Current running mode 1.1.2
Map: Cannot find required map name.
Press escape in 5 seconds to skip startu.nsh, any other key to continue.

Shell> _

And also weird CPU cooler start-up that I have never seen before as well.
Two videos uploaded to show all that:

Hardware used for boot test:

Motherboard: msi z77a-g65
CPU: i5-3570K
Memory: 2x4GB Corsair VengeanceLP 1600MHz
PSU: Corsair TX750M

no graphics card, I used integrated intel graphics instead as my geforce is still on its way.

Does anyone have an idea what's going on? are these issues serious? I read somewhere it could be due to no HDD/SSD connected.
Thank you in advance for your help.


I connected a hard drive and dvd-rom and that's a new message I am getting now:

  1. Be sure your bios settings haven't been reset. Also check your sata setting in the bios. It should remain the same as when you first installed windows, either native ide or achi. Same for the boot order (cd>hardrive, etc). Disable all floppy settings unless you use one.
  2. well, I didnt install my OS yet :) It was a test boot and I thought something is wrong there but it's fine now, apart from that strange CPU cooler start-up. Is it happening to your coolers as well tho or just my is weirdo?
