I need boot kit for Ryzen 5 2400G.

Jump to solution

Purchasing an Asus TUF B350M-Plus motherboard and AMD Ryzen 5 2400G APU. However, the Mobo must have latest Bios (3803) for the cpu to work. It is impossible to update the Bios if the AMD is installed and the mobo does not have latest Bios. If I order the mobo, no one will guarantee it has the latest Bios. AMD recognise this problem and offers a boot kit. However, you need to buy the APU first!

What does the boot kit consist of, and how do I get one in UK?

Think I might be in the same position as yourself, have ordered motherboard but have a feeling I might require the boot kit too.

From the time I bought the AMD processor and emailed the serial number etc,

it took about 2 weeks.

Hey Adrian, it really depends. Some recipients have been able to receive their kit within a week. Have you received an email response yet after filling out the online form?

yeah "We are processing your bootkit and you will receive further updates via email as soon as they become available"

but this is a known issue and they are very slow at replying not like its that easy to get your hands on a chip to sort this out trust i been looking for one that don't cost over £50 on the net but the lead time on them is over week so i like to know what time frame they have before i pay out another £50 but i can't find a number in the uk to ring them.
