    May be best to see details, use ppa version with your live installer (2nd option) or any working install, not older Boot-Repair ISO:
    Please copy & paste link to the Boot-info summary report ( do not post report), the auto fix sometimes can create more issues.
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair

    But it may just be that you need nomodeset boot parameter to boot or MSI needs additional boot parameters also. After you boot you will need to install nVidia driver from Ubuntu repository or ppa (to get very newest driver), not from nVidia directly.

    Do you get grub menu? If so can you boot using recovery mode?
    Many new systems even though new need UEFI update.
    And if SSD, you probably need a SSD firmware update.

    At grub menu you can use e for edit, scroll to linux line and replace quiet splash with nomodeset.

    Thank you for your help
    my problem is not about grub or booting , it's about the operating system it self , I cannot login to ubuntu successfully , every time when I set my username and password it does't work , It's login loop .

    If you booted with recovery mode, that uses the nomodeset boot parameter. That normally is required to boot if you have not installed the nVidia proprietary drivers from Ubuntu repository or Ubuntu's ppa (not nVidia directly). And nomodeset sets it to a lower quality video as nVidia has not been good about providing info for the open source nouveau developers. They just released a lot of new info, but it will be quite a while before that is in any default open source driver.

    Updated driver search by nVidia model, do not download, just check correct driver version

    nVidia install, purge older driver, if needed.

    With 18.04, the only way I can get to this now is with Software Updater & Settings.
