OK Just did so. Same problem. Two things I've noticed that may or may not be relevant.
1) Sometimes when I start it, it gets passed BIOS and restarts instantly going back through POST/BIOS once more.
2) Twice now I've got 'Invalid Checksum' error. 'Load defaults or F2 for setup'...

The BIOS has a built in Flash feature. I just flashed it with http://www.msi.com/product/mb/NF750-G55.html#/?div=BIOS v1.6 there. And now I'm getting stuck on "Checking NVRAM". Freezes up. Going to attempt to reflash with maybe 1.5

UPDATE: Just flashed(through BIOS M-FLASH option) to 1.5 now.

GOT UBUNTU SCREEN. Gonna plug stuff in and try and install win7 now.
