I kind of gave up on it. I went a couple of rounds with MSI support, and got nothing back from them. I never tried to use any tools to hack the BIOS. I've never done it before, it's kind of scarry, so I lived with it. Someone who knows more than I about these issues said (in some other thread) the boot time isn't so bad, so I just started to live with it. I had asked him what version of bios he had, but I think we both kind of forgot about it.
