I just build a PC with a MSI Mini-ITX B450I Gaming Plus AC, and a Ryzen 5 5600X processor, I knew this cpu wasn't compatible with that motherboard until I updated the BIOS, but I can't update the BIOS because the PC can't turn on, and the flashback option is only available in ATX format.
What can I do to update the BIOS and have a working PC ?

Thanks

First try to get help from the seller of your new motherboard to see if they will update BIOS for you.

If you fail in that, AMD has a loaner program where they ship you a CPU to update BIOS. You have to return it of course.

Other than that: getting a loaner from a friend can also do it. Without knowing the exact BIOS it's on a 2000 series CPU would be most likely to boot into BIOS to let you do the update. A 3000 series CPU should work if the board was manufactured and distributed since they were launched in mid-2019.
