Yes, you need 3 things for the board to POST into the BIOS. CPU, RAM, GPU. POST sequence checks each one and then boots. You should leave the CPU and RAM in as well as the GPU so you will know if it works. Once you successfully get into BIOS, use the Windows Media Creation tool on the USB stick and choose the USB drive as the bootable drive in the boot priority list, then hit F10, this will bring you to the windows installation screen. If you don't have a laptop or something I'd ask a friend if you can use their PC for about 5 mins to create the BIOS flash drive, and use another USB drive to create the windows media installation using the Windows Media Installation Tool.does it matter if i have ram and the cpu plug in?
Not for Bios update some times a nude board is easierthey are
ill try to download the BIOS update but i havent even download windows on the pc
You can do it with everything plugged in, it won't hurt anything.
Also if it doesn't work re-format the flash drive in Fat32 and try again, if that doesn't work get a new flash drive. It likes the Kingston drives, it's SUPER picky about what Flash drives it will accept, if it's an old one it most likely won't work.Also should I update the BIOS using the flashback bottom with all the component plug in? Because I saw that you should do it without anything on the motherboard
