What is your motherboard and can you please provide the link you are using to download the BIOS?

Be as specific and detailed as possible.

my motherboard is ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING WIFI and this is the link i downloaded it from https://rog.asus.com/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-b550-f-gaming-wi-fi-model/helpdesk_bios/

are you renaming the BIOS file correctly using the BIOS renamer?

What is the CPU you have installed right now?

Have you tried the BIOS flashback method?

Do you have this one or this one?

Because they look exactly the same externally with the only visible difference being having or lacking a II after the WIFI on the board label which may be hidden under a GPU. They use different BIOS files from what I can see on the Asus website. The II model supports 5000 out of the box. I've ran into issues like this with other brands and board revisions which are not always so clearly marked.
