Setup:

Update the BIOS on the mother board before trying to start. The mother board will not boot with the 3900X without a BIOS update.
1) Copy the Firmware to a USB. It must be empty.
2) Rename the Firmware to C7H.CAP
3) Turn off the power. You use the 120V switch.
4) Plug in the USB to the port labeled BIOS on the bottom left
5) Plug in the power supply. But, keep the mother board off. The heat sink light will flash.
6) Wait a few minute and then press the BIOS button on the back for 3 seconds. The button should start flashing.
7) The button then should flash much faster for about 5 minutes. If LED goes solid on it is an error. Restart the power and restart the flashing.
8) The button LED should eventually turn off.
