Accidentally updated BIOS (asus mobo) but Website says:ASUS Strongly recommends to Update to latest AMD Chipset First ??

Hey everybody, i have a question i hope somebody can help me with.

 

i recently bought a Ryzen 7 2700X  CPU

and an ASUS Prime X470-PRO motherboard.

 

after i finished my build, i went ahead in the BIOS and updated the BIOS to the latest version.

 

Then after installing Windows 10 i went to the ASUS Website (support) for Drivers

and noticed the lastest BIOS FIRMWARE (which i already installed) had a notice from asus saying:

 

"ASUS Strongly recommends to Update AMD Chipset Driver 18.50.16 or latest version before update this BIOS."

 

So now my question is:

 

Could there be something wrong with my motherboard now? ( everything seems to work perfectly and i havent notice any problems, errors or whatsoever. )

or is this more of a warning for an already installed Windows OS, and that i could break the OS itself?

 

because what if i just wanted to use linux? it doesnt make any sense to me that you need to update an OS to the lastest chipset in order to update the BIOS?

 

all i actually really want to know is if i should be worried now or not? atleast when it comes to the motherboard itself (hardware)    i dont care if it could break the OS since i can always easily install it again.

 

i hope somebody can help me with this

Thankyou in advance

No there cant be an issue with motherboard just because i upgraded bios before drivers.

 

Just upgrade the drivers now.
