Hi I´ve updated my bios and now it is the msi click bios and not the other Gaming Bios. Is it normal or did i do something wrong? I didnt use the latest Bios because it is in Beta and would Bluescreen everytime.
My Motherboard is the MSI Gaming Plus B450. I would like to use the old one, because it was much easier to navigate and set the Fan speeds.

The BIOS of the non-MAX boards has a size limitation, it's only 16 MB big. Each AM4 CPU with support in the BIOS needs to have its AGESA/microcode updates in there. That's why they have had to remove support for the oldest CPUs and make the layout more text-based, in order to add support for newer CPUs.

They re-released the boards as MAX versions which have a 32 MB BIOS chip, so everything fits in there again.

Your older board:
Starting from BIOS 7B86v18, they had to go to the Click BIOS with text-based layout to save space within the BIOS chip. That's normal. If you want the improvements/fixes, nothing you can do.

Newer MAX board, always the "full" BIOS:

MSI B450 Gaming Plus Updated Bios But Still On Old Click Bios


Updated to 7B86v19 and it shows that its updated to that in the bios but the bios never actually updated its look to the cleaner look as its supposed to do automatically. Any idea what I did wrong?

you either go back to even earlier BIOS (if you're not using Ryzen 3000 or later CPU) or you gonna stuck with simple UI BIOS
