Public bug reported: This msi board has a bios that the installer thinks is a uefi bios, but it is not a uefi bios, so the installer tries to install uefi and it can not so the install fails. There is no option to select any other install, like a non uefi grub legacy install.
In the past, I posted to linux forums and finally found something about turning off 2.2tb infinity drive setting in the bios.
