If you are updating your AM4 motherboard to PI1006 based BIOS, please read the following :

1. If you are using a Raven CPU, you MUST update the chipset driver to version 1810 or newer prior to doing the BIOS update.
    a. if you do not, you will not have a display in your OS, but may have a display during POST and BIOS.
    b. At this time, I am not aware of any workaround if you update to PI1006 with a Raven CPU prior to updating the chipset driver.
2. Another option is to use Live Update, as this will ensure that your chipset driver is updated prior to updating the BIOS.

Is the Ryzen 5 1600X a Raven CPU? (hint : No, it's not)

Basically, it doesn't matter as much for you. But if you had a Raven CPU,, it would.

Well as it got removed from the official support download i didn't think it hurt to ask, but i guess it did.
Sorry for bothering.

liviut2003 it probably got removed because MSI can't control who downloads it and so Raven Ridge users might too and run into issues. Most likely seemed too risky. For you - like darkhawk said - it doesn't matter though.

Are there any benefits to users who DO NOT have the Raven Ridge CPU?
Which CPU's is this intended for?

It is intended for all cpus used on the AM4 chipsets. It is not an update for Raven Ridge but can cause problems with Raven Ridge unless chipset driver is updated. That is all this thread is about.

The post suggests a problem with the BIOS itself which should be independent of the CPU installed. Socket AM4 has a finite range of processors so it should not be rocket science to develop a ROM that works.

It suggests that there's a problem. Doesn't mean the "BIOS" is a problem.....more goes into a BIOS than what MSI puts into it. And I'm quite certain that part isn't the problem....and since only 1 other group puts code into it....it really narrows it down. They've been known to deliver poor code too.

The ROM on the average box today is 16MB so there is not that much to work with and components are standard for UEFI these days.
