Pressing 'del' key repeatedly before the Windows splash screen is the way to enter the BIOS for editing settings.

If you're trying to edit the BIOS software itself, there are ways though if you are not familiar with doing this I would not recommend it on your primary PC. There are a few members on here that are very competent at it. I have done it but would not consider myself competent by any means.

What are you trying to change out of curiosity?

You are in over your head. That MSI bios is an executable flash file. You have to extract the rom/bin file from that executable first, mod it, and then put it back, all without blowing the checksum. If you've never done this before, don't even try without a lot of reading and practice.
I will refer you to this site here.

I've never heard of using 7zip to mod.

I would not mix ecc with non-ecc. Just get a matching set and save yourself the headaches.

FTR: Mr. Scott is one of the few I would consider competent.

I think he was trying to use 7Zip to see and work with the file... however, that is a compression and decompression tool. I don't think .exe are compressed and need to be read in the first place. I don't know how to take apart .exe files personally.

MSI takes a special program to unpack the actual bios rom from the executable. B2MB it's called.
Here is the extracted bin file.
Now it can be modded with the usual modding tools and flashed with AFUDOS.

Its a tool/program used to change files on your system yes anti virus software will report on it. If Mr Scott linked it it is safe.

Hah alright, so anyway i cant run ecc ram on my mb, i foundd boardview and there is no lanes for ecc :(
After trying to run this ecc ram i`m got curious what is the chance of ram error and how ofter its can be, i read its 90% of error at 3 days, is that true m8? And when theoretically cosmic ray hit ram (sound like truther haha) and cause error, that can crash my windows when, l`m doing something important?


P.S i tested this program and this is all i wanted, <3, btw i dont know is a truther is a correct word, i dont found word with the same meaning as in my language XD.
