I am receiving my third MB today. Over a week now I have been trying to flash a bios that will accept Ryzen 5 5600G. I ordered the Asus B550 Rog Strix Gaming F MB that will be arriving later tonight. I still have at home a MSI B550 Pro A MB that I have flashed probably with success like 12 or more times. I have cleaned the USB drive by using diskpart. I have downloaded the correct BIOS for 5600G. I have unblocked the file within windows. I have plugged the usb into the BIOS flash Port after waiting two minutes after turning on the PSU. I press the flashback button and it recognizes the drive and proceeds to flash the bios (computer turns on, fans, lights,). It takes roughly 4-5 minutes every time. Computer powers down and then powers back on immediately and the USB drive shuts off. I have built in the case and outside of the case using the MB box. I have checked every component one by one. I have swapped USB drives. I have tried really everything I can think of. At this point if the MB I ordered today doesn't work I will have to assume it's a CPU issue. I can't get past post, just a solid white lite next to CPU. I have been building desktops for 16 years plus and never encountered this type of issue continuously. Any help would be welcomed as I really at this point just want to return everything and come back in a few months when boards roll out with the updated BIOS.

Ryzen 5 5600G

Hi
If you are on third motherboard then you really should consider other components to be faulty. I also believe these CPU should be POSTable on older BIOS on 500 platform.

CPU continues to get EZ debug white light. Does not go through POST stops at CPU. Both boards CPU performed the same. Ram is fine, PSU is fine, Only thing I can't check for sure is the CPU. Pulled everything out of the case using minimal components as I said. Only CPU is giving me a issue.

if the cpu is doing that on every board you try it on then its probably a defective CPU that is DOA (Dead On Arrival) so if on the board you ordered if its doing the same i would RMA the CPU to get it replaced.

Yeah I just sent the MSI B550 Pro A board back in and got the Asus ROG STRIX B550 GAMING F. Worked perfectly out of the box for Ryzen 5600G.
