I am going to replace my old cpu with a Ryzen 7 5700, I went to the asrock website support and there is nothing about NOT updating bios for RYZEN cpu's only " Pinnacle, Raven or Summit Ridge." Is it assumed then that Rvzen
is ok to update to?
Color me cornfused!

Thanks, I am wanting to upgrade from amd 2000 to the Ryzen 7 5700 on a asrock B450 steel legend mobo. It's just scary as hell to update the bios when asrock is saying this:

[TD]4.00[/TD]
[TD]2021/3/11[/TD]
[TD]10.64MB[/TD]
[TD]Instant Flash[/TD]
[TD]
Update AMD AGESA ComboAM4v2 1.2.0.0

*ASRock do NOT recommend updating this BIOS if you are going to use Pinnacle, Raven or Summit Ridge CPU on your system.
*Before updating this BIOS, please also read the description in previous BIOS version".
[/TD]​
So it still comes back to updating using the P4 update.
I installed the new cpu yesterday and turned on the machine and nothing ran from the cpu at all. So I have removed it today and reinstalled the AMD 200 GE cpu and it of course started up as usual. Next question: Do I download the P4 update now, then install it before reinstalling the Ryzen 7 5700?
