ok my mobo (MSI K9A2 CF-F Socket AM2+ 790X) is pissing me right off
i want to update my bios to 1.7 as its only on 1.2 so i think!! go to msi website dl latest bios and bang, no its not that simple, you can only update the downloadable bios by floppy disc, i have no floppy drive/card reader or usb sticks (emulation) so i install msi live update ( a windows app that searches for and installs updated msi software/drivers and bios. yippeee)
this has to be the biggest piece of crap software ive ever installed on a system period!
for a start the version off msi website conflicts and disables vista uac causing an immediate reboot and continues to do this until you boot into safe mode and prevent it from starting up. so i uninstall this and install the one off the mobo cd, and it tells me i must update the live update software
whatever not like im busy anyway, so update it and install new version reboot blah blah
start up the program and straight its giving me pops about
flash mmio deviceiocontrol error
tried running msi live monitor and it gives me a runtime error. spazzes out then closes. basically i have no freaking way to update my bios apart from using a damn dos disc
i do not care now, i absolutely will not buy another product from msi, there software has to be some of the shittest ive used and has caused me no end of headaches today, tbh i dont even want this pos motherboard now.
