    MSI Z390-A PRO Reviews

    Z390-A PRO LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from MSI PC motherboard is DOA When I got this PC motherboard, I installed the Win 10 home. All the drivers were installed except the LAN network card. I download driver from MSI website and still failed. Tried to install the LAN driver (for the Z390 Intel chipset) from Intel website, it still failed. The BIOS boot up menu is very confusing for the beginner. I have only one drive to install and the BIOS menu give me several boot options from different devices which very confusing. I re-installed the OS and same failure again. So I come to the conclusion that the board is DOA. B&H customers service is always the best as I have been doing business with them last 35 years. I finally can not wait another 3 days for new board and decided to get different board from another company
