I just received a response to my request for a boot kit so I can flash my new motherboard and install my new Ryzen 7 2700x. The email indicated that my brand new processor was not eligible. So I am stuck with a new board and processor that I can't use. Is there any other way to flash a bios without a compatible CPU installed?
Additional Followup - ASUS directed me to contact AMD for a boot kit. They would not provided any assistance. So AMD and ASUS will not provide any support for this issue. This doesn't seem like a isolated issue. Surely there has to be a solution available for consumers purchasing new processors and the motherboard market still has older stock out there.
