I have a Dell Inspiron 5675 Ryzen desktop. Much to my chagrin, Dell will not release a BIOS that supports 2nd and 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs. Some research indicated that the 5675 and 5676 (the 5675’s Ryzen 2xxx successor) used the same motherboard. So I decided to flash the 5675 with a 5676 BIOS to see if I could get at least 2nd Gen/Zen+ support. As you probably figured from the subject, it is now a brick. I tried Dell’s BIOS recovery, but no dice.
I knew this result was a possibility, but I really wanted to move beyond the 1700. Assuming there’s no way to recover this brick, what course should I take? I’m inclined to wait for new X570 mobos and drop my 1700 in, then upgrade to 3xxx later.
