    Hello :)

    I'll take pics and detail all of this procedure.
    I'll be using voodoo to make the card accept to be in a non VR GT72.
    I'll keep my nvme 4 ports. Too bad i dont have a socketed CPU, I would upgrade it to a 4900MQ+^^

    Hi MSI :)

    DONE.
    UEFI + CSM mode : ON

    Everything is okey.
    Temps are not like I would like them to be. I'll do a repaste with IC Diamond.

    Big Dislike to Eurocom which made a mistake in the postal code of my address which delayed the 80CAD-payed shipping. I wasnt given any bonus, goodies etc to make up for it .
    25/05/2017 : Ordered a 1060 MXM MSI at (01.00 GMT+2)
    25/05/2017 : Shipped.
    26/05/2017 : in Canada waiting for the plane..
    28/05/2017 : in South of EU.
    29/05/2017: Eurocom put the wrong postal code in my shipment. This will delay it 2/3 days !
    I sent a yelling email, and they better refund the 80 CAD of shipping.
    30/05/2017 : Got lucky and saw the UPS driver in my neighborhood. Got the card !

    Nice one man. Good luck just remember UEFI boot option only in bios else you will get a blank screen in power up.

    I actually tried to use UEFI boot mode and UEFI with CSM. I can't boot anymore this is driving me crasy. I always used my machine with legacy mode (bought it with freedos). I don't know what to do lol.. Thanks MSI for the mose buggy bios/uefi ever !!!!!

    Your windows install must be a UEFI install for it to boot into windows with UEFI bios option enabled. Legacy formats drive as MBR UEFI formats drive as gpt.

    Ok have you tried using the install CD to see if it can find the is and repair?. If not look at this video

    Although I would advise with a clean os install myself
