Here are some instructions for updating your BIOS to support the 5000G series CPUs
without needing a Matisse CPU to perform the update. Please bare in mind this is
a workaround to help those of you who don't have access to a Matisse CPU to perform
the update. As with any end user level BIOS workaround/fix, do this at your own
risk.

To minimize the risk of a bad flash be sure to clear CMOS with the clear CMOS
jumper or by removing the battery with the power disconnected for 10mins. Once
clear, boot into the BIOS and load BIOS defaults.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First, download the following PDF and follow the instructions:
https://download.asrock.com/TSD/Ryzen5000/X570%20Phantom%20Gaming-ITXTB3.pdf



The first link, provides a tool to format a USB stick, and enabling it to run the EFI Shell



The second download, contains the necessary files, and also includes BIOS release 2.60



Now a 5900 CPU (Vermeer) will work, but a 5000 Series Cezanne (5700G) requires at least BIOS 3.00, and will still not work

https://asrock.com/mb/AMD/X570%20Phantom%20Gaming-ITXTB3/index.asp#CPU

The solution is download the latest BIOs (currently 3.20)

Extract it onto the USB stick, and change the NSH file, which is basically a batch file, for a EFI shell command prompt



This is the content of the original BIOSUPDATE.nsh file:
Quote
echo -off

B16

if %lasterror% == 0 then

echo Update BIOS for Picasso and Pinnacle.

AfuEfix64 X57TB3_2.60 /p /b /n /k /l /x /ATR /CMD:{TOP16M} /RLC:F

AfuEfix64 X57TB3_2.60 /p /b /n /k /l /x /CMD:{BOTTOM16M} /RLC:F

else

echo Please use Instant Flash to update BIOS.

Endif



And this is what it should be:
Quote
echo -off

B16

if %lasterror% == 0 then

echo Update BIOS for Picasso and Pinnacle.

AfuEfix64 X57TB3_3.20 /p /b /n /k /l /x /ATR /CMD:{TOP16M} /RLC:F

AfuEfix64 X57TB3_3.20 /p /b /n /k /l /x /CMD:{BOTTOM16M} /RLC:F

else

echo Please use Instant Flash to update BIOS.

endif


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once this is done the Cezanne (5000g) CPU will now work. As always with any BIOS
flash there is the risk of a bad flash. If this workaround fails you will need
to RMA the board to have the BIOS reflashed by ASRock. It is possible to recover
the system with an external flasher but this is not something for the inexperienced.
