So I have just finished building my pc and ran some tests which were successful. I entered the BIOS to update the motherboard becuase it is a b450 with a R5 3600. I have the 7C02v1B4 installed on a usb that has been extracted and is plugged into the flash bios in the motherboard. I go to the BIOS settings and go to M-Flash and click select one file to BIOS and it says FS1: <null_string>. Did i plug in the usb wrongly because i tried on the case as well. Says the ROM file was not found and sent me back to the menu screen. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Heres the list

I was led to believe on these motherboard's that flash the BIOS via USB flashback option, that only a certain USB port is used.... not any. Are you putting the USB drive into the lowest USB port under the PS2 port.

Look at the motherboard manual for a picture on page 22.
