What you are looking for is BIOS Flashback. Your motherboard doesn't have it.
https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1013998
Can't update BIOS without going to BIOS menu otherwise, which requires a CPU the BIOS supports. 3rd gen isn't supported out of the box currently, I don't think. Usually mobos come with 6+ months old BIOS-versions. 3rd gen ryzen BIOS is at most 3 months old.
Maybe future mobos will support out of the box but it is always a gamble. You don't know how long a given mobo has been in stock at the store.

EDIT: If you bought the stuff locally, you could ask the store if they can flash the mobo. Local computer service stores can do it but usually requires a fee.
