my new pc build won’t boot unless i flash the bios to the newest version, when i try to turn it on without doing this i just get a red CPU light on my motherboard and nothing else happens.
I know its very vague but has anyone else experienced this or know of any solutions for this problem?

The Tomahawk MAX comes out of the box ready for the 3600.
After i built the PC and tried to turn it on, i instantly got a CPU debug led. I tried placing the processor in multiple times to make sure it was in properly and the pins weren’t bent. It wasn’t until i flashed the bios that I managed to get a display on my monitor.

after i got to the bios screen it showed me that the motherboard was updated to the latest version and i made my m.2 ssd #1 on boot priority as i had managed to install windows and store it on that. However when i tried to restart my pc after taking out the usb drive that had the bios flash on it. It goes back to showing the CPU debug light and nothing else happens
