No. The board must first be able to at lease get into the BIOS to flash. IOW, a working BIOS+CPU+MB

I was just reminded. This board has the BIOS soldered on.

You'll need to take it to a shop that has a 7 to update with



Contact ASRock on the below page. They usually charge $15.00USD for a BIOS chip that you yourself, or a shop, can change out that will be the latest BIOS revision at the time sent.

Usually. If you ask politely I wouldn't be surprised if maybe they send you one a no charge. Wink

Keep us posted on your results and progress please.

It won't even post? 

If it does but you are missing the flashing option, maybe this could help you:

My motherboard came with bios in version 2.3 and I could boot fine with Ryzen 5 1600x. You can still try to power it up.
