    Default Need help to update BIOS on Asrock B450M motherboard

    Recently bought an Asrock B450M Steel Legend motherboard and an AMD Ryzen 5 5600g processor. The motherboard I got is currently compatible with a 2000 or 3000 series Ryzen processor. I need to update the BIOS so that the board can be compatible with the 5600g Ryzen processor. To do this, I need a processor that is compatible with the motherboard to update the BIOS. Can any anyone advise on where I can get an AMD procossor just to update the BIOS?

    That kinda looks sticky. Someone would have to be willing to loan you a CPU for the update to be done. You've got not friends with a compatible processor that could help you out? If someone here has an old CPU thrown down they're not using, maybe they'd help - but again - that's dependent on a big IF.

    Sticky for real. Why yuh never researched before buying that board or get the updated version that already compatible with that processor? Maybe if your lucky someone at a computer shop can loan you one or do the board update for you.

    Yeah it is sticky for real.

    The only only other thing you could try if is to get AMD to send you a dummy CPU that you can boot to. If you are lucky and have the time that should do it.

    Good solution if he's overseas. Which I kinda doubt still...
