OC3D Review: MSI EFI

Are your eyes hurting from long hours of scanning through the BIOS for that extra mhz or two. Then MSI may have something for you.

Wow, that looks pretty cool, I've got expressgate on my P5Q-E and it would be good if someone released something which was like a combination of the two, it's great being able to check something on the net in a hurry without booting into windows.

I've actually had this on my MSI P45 Platinum for a couple of weeks. It's extremely simple to use, and it looks great. I'm interested to see how they will develop this for the future. What it really needs now is an Internet browser

Ooh, thats interesting.. What did you use to flash yours? Following the MSI instructions instructions didnt work on ours (it came pre-flashed, but we tried a dummy flash to test it worked)?

I used a memory stick on which I had installed DOS so I could boot from it. Then I put the BIOS files on the stick, powered on, booted from stick and typed msiflash "bios name" /p. It worked it's magic and I rebooted.

You will need the following HP utility to make your drive bootable and you will also need these system files.

HP USB storage format tool

System Files

Install the program and extract the system files. Run the program and make sure you have FAT32 selected. Select the "Quick format option" and the "Create a DOS startup disk" option. Now select "Using DOS system files located at:" and point it to the system files folder. Then click "Start".

Then your drive is good to go. Just copy the BIOS files on to it

Looks great! I've always been wondering why companies don't make the BIOS more user friendly. Now I need an MSI mainboard to use it on.
