I get a spare IO bracket, SLI bridge and sata cables too
Amazon is very consumer friendly when it comes to RMAs.

So Im wondering if there is a custom bios that replaces that image or if there is a way to mod the bios to replace it. Im probably going to end up with a refurbed Krait too (newegg told me to send the return and then refused it...last time I order from them) So I may eventually go back to the Krait. But that will be months from now most likely and I have to change this one ASAP.
There should be an option to in the menu. Go to the boot menu.
Look at where it's highlighted - here is an H87 board, but all MSI BIOS layouts are similar.
While you cannot replace the logo, at least you can hide it.
The only other way is to go full UEFI, which may or may not require a full OS clean install.
Beep would suggest that something is wrong - no they don't all beep at POST.
Try disabling case intrusion detection.

You might have to reinstall Windows, depending on how you installed Windows in the first place. If windows was installed in UEFI mode, you should be good. If not, you'll have to reinstall. Quick way to try it out. If it doesn't work, just reverse the switch in the BIOS.
Sometimes Windows can be picky and require a system recovery to make it work.

Usually a month or two before there are a few exclusive reviewers that get their hands on it. But to be honest, I'm not sure it's going to be any different than the X99 Godlike (Red) version. I would recommend you read that and see if it is a good fit for you.
Sin0822 has some of the best reviews on the web.

Ive tried taking it out of its folder, leaving it in its folder. Ive tried various formats for the usb but nothing works.
FAT32 is probably your safest bet. It has to be in the parent directory too, not a folder often. Also, try plugging it into one of the USB ports controlled by the Intel controller, rather than any third party solution. Often the Asmedia controllers from my experiences don't work as well.Edited by CrazyElf - 1/27/16 at 4:05pm
