Hi Eugene

Looking at the user manual for the B550-A PRO I see MSI do not support using 32 bit Windows with this mainboard, see bottom of this page https://www.manuals.co.uk/msi/b550-a-pro/manual?p=43

Do all our B550-A PRO users have that printed in the manual supplied with their mainboard?

I'm also wondering if there is a technical reason for this or are MSI just trying to lighten their support load?


Regards

Pete

I saw that but assumed that 32 bit windows is not set up for UEFI hence their saying that.

Hi

Well the above posts kill my theory that Eugene has a later Revision of the mainboard with some hardware difference(s) that somehow stopped 32 bit os's being installed...

Pete

I imagine if I were to contact there support I will hear the old "We don't support OS/2" Anyway. Hey no problem I have options for this box. So there is no real problem.

Might be worth trying a different USB stick, I've had 3 fail in subtle ways while beta testing.

I could do that. But I removed the NVME drive and used a DVD and Sata drive and it fails at the same point eveytime. I hit F10 and it quits and reboots. I will  have to wait.
