 i downloaded the latest bios (5.7) from here https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/KT3_Ultra2
in the text file it says that i need a floppy with win 98/me but i dont have any floppy. i tried to boot the bios files from usb and i tried to boot them from cd.
i tried to boot them from windows vista install control panel with usb and cd.
also i tried to create a boot stick with MSIHQ Tool ver. 1.28j but it doesnt recognize the files.
update: now the tool recognised a file and now the stick looks like this http://prntscr.com/nt6ge5 but it still doesnt boot successfully. there is only a blinking dash in the top left of the screen.

Ok, but what does the version 3.31a in the bios title mean? and why does that acpi error come? How can i install any operating system?

maybe i try to patch it back to 5.6?  because in the description it says "-Fixed WinXP EventViewer ACPI error"?

How can i patch it back to 5.6 when i cant boot any bios update setup? and does patching back make sense at all? Isnt the acpi fix also included in 5.7?

what can i do now?

3.31A is a general BIOS build number that cover a particular series of boards. A6380VMS V5.7 is the BIOS version for your board. For your error problem it would help to know what parts you have in your system.   >> Posting Guide <<
