Hi, Ive had my x570 Unify since Jan 2021 and have no issues with the motherboard....just the software, but since updating the bios to E7C35AMS.AC0( AMD ComboAm4v2PI 1.2.0.6c ) release date 2022-03-25 Ive had error code 00 but had no issues runninf windows 11, I`ve tried resetting the bios but nothing changed, just wondering if anyone else has similar issue with the latest bios.

So in other words you get the 00 code but you can get into UEFI and Windows, right?
I've had a ton load of problems with the 1.2.0.6c UEFI version for the B550 Gaming Carbon WiFi, and since I've got a Unify (albeit B550) coming my way, I'll keep your experience in mind,

Hi, yes that is correct, I did read somewhere that clearing the comos corrected the issue for some people but didn't work for me so i`ll wait for the next bios release...if not I`ll try the previous bios but while my system does work Im just going to leave as is.

when I run advanced update on MSI Center I see update for LED FW update(7C35_2.0) from A7 to AB I havent updated myself, maybe someone can confirm might need to update ?

I also have the x570 unify I still on previous bios I just hold from updating just incase it brings up issues

The very thought of updating any firmware through a Windows app (Dragon Center or MSI Center) makes me shudder.
You may not have any choice with the LEDs, nevertheless...

It's not great but it's the only way to get firmware updates which are needed. Led firmware update isn't actually about led's only. It's an update to the system monitoring chip which monitors all of the temperature sensors, and controls all the fans in the system. It also controls the led's as well so naturally msi call it led firmware lol.

Are you running upto date led firmware?

I'd place the emphasis on "it's not great". :-)
I avoid Windows firmware updating apps (MSI, Gigabyte, etc.) like the plague, just too many potential problems.
Sometimes though you have no choice.

Msi keep quiet about firmware updates, to the point that only in February this year did they openly specify its needed. I don't know about ab, but I would update just before the new bios is installed. I'm staying on a7 till the new bios personally.

It just says NO UPDATES cannot find updates in server, even after updating to version 1.0.45.0
That suggests you have already downloaded the ab update but I'm guessing you haven't. If center doesn't work correctly it's hard to do anything about it. Also their servers are patchy sometimes.

Even on previous versions of MSI center its never shown anything, to my understanding the led firmware is separate to the bios patching....in which case i have not touched the firmware....could it be that the board was already up to date when i bought it from Scan.co.uk in Jan 2021

It is separate to the bios and you definitely need an update to the firmware. I don't know why scan and advanced scan isn't working for you.

Hi, this morning i decided to try earlier bios to see if anything changes but no, i still have no option for MB LED FW but i`m still getting "mainboard`s LED firmware is abnormal please go to advanced update blah blah blah when i use mystic lighting in MSI center.

To make things worse i recently bought an MSI clutch 20 elite mouse to replace my failing Corsair m65 rgb Elite but even that is causing issues with my system.....usb resets and wont stay synced in Mystic light.

I just ran the advanced update again and now dont see the LED Firmware update they might have removed it ?

Ive not had a problem updating the firmware on the clutch20 but the dpi options in dragon center are pretty sparse....thats what you get for a £25 mouse i suppose.
