formatted to fat 32, downloaded drivers onto pc, unzipped them, renamed to MSI.ROM, copied to drive, plugged into pc, pressed bios flash button

I'm surprised you needed to update the bios. New motherboards typically ship with a recent bios release.

 

Did you insert the usb drive in the designated usb flashback port?

Odd thoughts:  USB capacity? Are extensions enabled in Windows Explorer? If the cpu is already installed you might remove it and check for a bent pin.
