Windows 7: Having compatibility issues with my motherboard

Having compatibility issues with my motherboard

So, as the title suggests, I'm having compatibility issues with my motherboard, let me explain. I recently bought an MSI H110M PRO-D along side a Kaby Lake G4560 for my new build. I knew from the beginning that I was going to have to update the BIOS to support Kaby Lake, but I thought I could do that very easily(booting into BIOS and upgrading), like any other BIOS update, but the thing is, I can't. My monitor gives me no signal when trying to boot off of it(No, the monitor is not dead, I'm using it right now to type this). This means that I have to get a Skylake chip to upgrade the BIOS so that the computer can function normally, but I have no friends etc that has a Skylake CPU. So, what should I do? I have contacted the only MSI partner in Sweden, and they said that they only fix prebuilt computers. I should be able to send it in to MSI, but I want to see if there are any other faster options available. Thanks.

If the MSI H110M PRO-D doesn't work with the current BIOS and the Kaby Lake G4560, and you don't have a Skylake to run on it and then update the BIOS to support the Kaby Lake G4560, sorry to say, but you stuck.
You must take the MB to someone that has a Skylake to do the BIOS update.

Yeah, that's what I realized a few days ago.
