The worst Windows 10 Installation experience ever

Pros: The dragon logo is cool, I gave it 2 eggs for it.

Cons: So I wanted to install Windows 10 on this motherboard using Pentium G4560, a SATA SSD and a bootable USB.
I created a bootable USB using Daemon Tools. Connected it to the motherboard, connected a SATA SSD, selected USB drive as first in a boot order, but it said "Reboot and select proper boot device or Insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key." I tried several solutions, none of which worked:

- tried 3 different USB drives;
- tried USB 3.0 as well as USB 2.0 ports;
- tried manually selecting the device to boot from by pressing F11;
- tried selecting various options in BIOS, such as WHQL support, UEFI or LEGACY+UEFI modes, AHCI/RAID option, enable/disable fast boot etc.;
- updated bios to the latest version, also tried an older version;
- used 3 different pieces of software to create bootable USB - Daemon Tools, Rufus, WinSetupFromUS. Also tried to simply drag the files from the ISO onto the FAT-32 formatted flash Drive;
- using standard windows tools and within software partitioned USB drives as GPT or MBR, formatted them as FAT32 or NTFS;
- tried 3 different Windows 10 ISO files
- tried different RAM sticks in different slots, 2 different power supplies;
- tried some old SSD as well as HDD;
- tried to boot with AMD card (R9 fury), Nvidia card (1070) and built-in video of the G4560 CPU;
- after many combinations of the things listed above, a few times it was starting to boot, but the system BSODed and reported various errors, such as 0xc0000098, 0xc0000221, 0xc000021a, IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL and others;

- tried praying to Taiwanese deities and asked for mercy.

Then I went to my neighbor to ask for advice, and he happened to have a H110 Asus motherboard lying around! I took it home, installed the CPU, connected everything, and it worked straight away! I just selected the USB device in the BIOS and it booted from it, installation process started, Windows 10 was finally installed and was working great with the Asus board.

BUT!
It was not the end of the story! I did not install any ASUS software or drivers onto the drive. Took everything apart, and then installed the CPU and connected the SSD with the OS installed, as well as another hard drive with my personal files to the MSI Z270-A PRO board. It booted into the OS, but then suddenly BSODed, then rebooted again, than BSODed again and turned off.
I went into the BIOS, but strange things were happening: it would, but more often would not detect the drives, but would not boot anymore.

I reconnected everything back to the Asus board, but it stopped detecting the drives too. I freaked out. I went to my neighbor again, we connected the drives to his PC, but it was not detecting them either. Luckily, he had a piece of software on his Mac that managed to initiate the drive with my files, and he made a backup. Then he partitioned the drives again and they started to work. Then we installed the OS using the Asus board again, he borrowed it to me, and that's what I use now.

I am afraid to even tough the MSI Z270-A Pro motherboard, and will never buy a mobo from this company again.

Only works with Windows 10

Pros: Cannot say, it doesn't work.

Cons: I have Win7 Pro. When I first installed the motherboard, I could not get network. Then I noticed my mouse wheel didn't work. Then I checked Device Manager and saw the list of devices not working. Not even USB sticks. I figured it was not updating the drivers. (Remember, no internet). I wrote MSI and they said, sorry, Win7 not supported. Goodbye.

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the MSI product. We certainly value your feedback and please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenient experience. Keep in mind that Windows 7 was created before USB 3.0 existed, so the Windows 7 installation will not have the drivers installed. There are plenty of online guides for injecting USB 3.0 drivers into the Windows 7 installation media, but you will need to use a USB 2.0 port with a USB 2.0 flash drive. After this, you will need to install the network drivers (fresh Window installs do not have any drivers installed). If you have any further questions regarding this product or have any suggestions for improvement for us, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at usreview@msi.com and we will be more than happy to assist you.

Customer Service Non-Existant

Pros: It works fine with older graphics cards

Cons: I paired this motherboard with a new EVGA 1060 graphics card. The 1060 wouldn't run. But my old 970 gtx did. RMA'd the 1060 card. The replacement didn't run either. Emailed MSI tech support for suggestions. I thought I might have to change a bios setting to get the new graphics card to work. They sent me back a canned response that had nothing to do with my question. EVGA tech support had no suggestions either. So now I'm running my old 970 in the new board while the 1060 gathers dust. Don't expect any help from MSI tech support. It's fake.

Dear Alfonso,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the MSI product. We certainly value your feedback and please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenient experience. The main concern and why this issue is a strange one is that there is no major difference between the PCIe architecture of the GTX 970 to the GTX 1060. In 99% of cases where one GPU works and the other doesn't, the issue lies with the GPU or the power supply (as it may or may not supply the adequate power to the card). Because the 970 works in the PCIe slot, we can out rule the slot itself. One thing you can try is updating the BIOS to the latest version (if you haven't done so already). After this, Be sure that you set the "PEG X - Max Link Speed" to Auto (it should be this by default) and you enable "Above 4G Decoding". Both of these options will be under the Advanced section in the "PCI Subsystem Settings" submenu. If you require further technical assistance, please feel free to contact our technical support department directly at 626.271.1004 from M to F, 9am to 6pm Pacific Standard Time.

Works Amazing

Pros: Easy OC, Run mine with MSI GTX 1080. Very simple build. Love the MSI utility download. Makes boosting real simple if you are new to PC builds.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if some of these comments are fake to make MSI look bad or just to promote another brand. I've always used MSI on 5 PC builds and have had no Issue. Make sure you are grounded before you touch ANYTHING DURING BUILD.
