Hey there everyone!
So I recently bought an Asus Strix B350-F in order to use it with the upcoming 2nd Generation Ryzen 7 CPU.
The problem is, I didn't think it through, and I need to update the BIOS of that motherboard before using it with the new CPUs.
I can't return the motherboard, since it's being shipped to me from very very far away, and I don't have any native B350 compatible CPU, so I was wondering:
Is there any way to update the BIOS of my motherboard with the next-gen CPU? Or even without a CPU at all?
I'd really be bummed out to have to buy a cheap APU just to update it and then not be able to sell it anywhere... Especially since my budget doesn't allow it.
Thank you in advance for the help!
What -should- happen is it will boot into a failsafe mode stating AMD Unknown to let you get into BIOS. If it doesn't, that board doesn't feature a USB Flashback capability, so you'll need a supported chip.
Thanks for the help!
I'm leaving the post unanswered and will update it with what happens once the CPU releases and I test what you suggested.
