hi,
I have ASRock AM2NF3-VSTA mobo without cpu,
and I cant see my bios version or update it.
I want to buy AM3 cpu for mobo (Athlon II X2 250),
and cpu-upgrade.com states it needs P3.30 bios.

my question is, will I be able to run this cpu on mobo if my bios is older than required, only to update bios?
anyone tried this? thanks a lot.

The BIOS chip on motherboard has a label that states current BIOS version.
There is a chance the board will POST with older BIOS version with that processor, but I do not know for sure.
