Stay away from MSI motherboards, they make good graphics card not motherboards. Next time get a gigabyte see how stable their boards are, RMA % is least in giga.

Could a USB device be hanging the system?

yes, you could also clear out the non microsoft items in start up.
Just type msconfig in the start bar box and hit enter.

If you decide to trim from the services tab just click hide all microsoft first to be sure you aren't removing anything windows will need.

Startup items are generally safe to remove.
Everything is simple check boxes untick to disable tick to enable.

oh yeah probably shouldn't mess with the boot tab at all.

That is an excellent suggestion. There's one way to find out - disconnect them!

If that doesn't help, you might try resetting your BIOS to Defaults. Make sure you note any special settings you may have in there so you can change them back if necessary.

If your drive has a jumper installed, set it to cable select.

The bios is completely unrelated to windows.
The bios should be accessible no matter what.
If the bios is not accessible you have a motherboard problem.
