I have a B450 motherboard with updated bios to run my Ryzen 7 3700x just fine. However, I was thinking of giving the board to a friend for his Ryzen 7 2700x CPU so I can upgrade. Will the gen 3-updated BIOS work fine on his gen 2 processor? Thanks!!

It will almost always support it , the update didnt erase the gen 2 support , it simply added gen 3 sipport , on some board they did erase supoort , but that was for 16mb cache boards and the ones erased are support for fx platforms , you'd be find
