Ok, so I have the Asus B85M-E motherboard.
My problem is: I have to update the BIOS to use my Intel i5 4690K and I dont have another processor supported by the actual version of the BIOS.
Will my computer start if I install the 4690K anyway ? So I can update bios and them continue to use it without problems.

Thank you, sorry for my bad english (still training).

I used to have this problem a lot at work (I'm an IT tech), and we have always had to get an older CPU just to flash the board.
There's actually been a couple of times that putting in the new CPU with the old BIOS has corrupted the BIOS, which would have ruined the board, were we not using Gigabyte "Dual BIOS" boards.

With that being said, Asus might be different with it, but generally, it would be best for you to see about borrowing an older CPU, just to flash the BIOS.
