You're guessing correctly, as it is definitely a driver issue. Make sure
that the motherboard is set to timing defaults, and that boot time
protection is disabled. Also, disconnecting unnecessary peripherals can
help. If the HDD needs a driver file, make sure to load the most current one
that MSI offers for their motherboard during setup.
