i'm planning to upgrade my rig to AMD system with Ryzen 3000 (zen2) , but if i buy the B450 chipset which is will be upgrade-able to the upcoming latest Ryzen CPUs.. is it necessary to install CPU first or without it when updating the BIOS?

Currently i have an intel System

If you're doing a whole system change, don't buy a motherboard that does not work with the desired CPU right out of the box.
