I noticed that you have a B450 motherboard with a Ryzen 5 2600 (a matisse processor) which may require a BIOS update and an older CPU to perform that BIOS update before it is able to run with Ryzen. Does it say on the box of the motherboard or in the manual that it will support Ryzen CPUs out of the box without the need for a BIOS update?


Hope this information post was helpful  ?,
