@kerberos_20, thanks so much for your reply, which covers all my questions.

Interestingly, I had contacted Asus support in the meantime and in response to my question, whether I could expect that Windows would still boot with the new BIOS and the old CPU) they wrote:

Quote ASRock does not recommended to update BIOS if you are going to use the CPU model you described (Pinnacle ridge ) , but if you are going to update to newer version , then you can do the update and as soon as the BIOS is swapped you can verify .

Why is not recommended ; since the newer update the CPU software and the version is for newer CPU .

Conclusion is do not update if you are not ready to swap the CPU(because most of the time when BIOS is update to latest version and you are using old CPU the windows fail to boot


Their last sentence took me a bit by surprise. If "most of the time" Windows would fail to boot with a non-recommend BIOS, wouldn't the forums be full of it (since there are plenty of folks that will try the newest BIOS, even when they don't need it)?

Asrock Taichi x470: Upgrade procedure from 2700X to 5800X3D

I am currently running BIOS Version P2.00 on my Taichi x470 with Windows 10 21H2 and would like to upgrade my Ryzen 2700X to a 5800X3D. I wasn't able to find a step-by-step guide for this, so that's why I'm hoping to get some advice here.

On their website at https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/X470%20Taichi/index.asp#BIOS Asrock mentions that they do NOT recommend upgrading the BIOS to a newer version for Pinnacle Ridge CPUs like mine. However I suppose I do have to upgrade the BIOS before swapping out the CPU.

So here are my questions:
1. If I upgrade to a newer BIOS version - say 4.90 - will my computer still boot into Windows with my current 2700X and run (even if perhaps not at optimal speed)? That would be important to me, so I can order the 5800X3D after the BIOS upgrade succeeds.

2. Is version 4.90 the recommended version for the 5800X3D or should I use one of the earlier versions instead?

3. The following are the steps that I'm assuming I will need to do:
a) Reset BIOS to default settings
b) Upgrade BIOS to recommended version
c) Swap CPU
d) Reset BIOS again (just to be on the safe side)

Are there any other steps that I should be doing for this procedure?

Thanks so much in advance for any advice.
