As stated it has everything minus the ryzen 5600g cpu. My question is I plugged it up without any CPU installed. To see if it would boot up. Lights come on or something. And nothing..not even the led lights on the panel of the case. I have ordered a ryzen 5600g cpu. Should be here Saturday. Will this pc not even power up without a cpu?

In my opinion, I wouldn't worry about it for now. You can't boot without a CPU. You can't even POST without a CPU. You can probably turn on the power and maybe get an error beep from your motherboard. Or maybe nothing at all.
Just wait until you get your Ryzen 5600g. As you undoubtedly know, make sure you apply thermal paste and heatsink, yadi-yadi-ya. Then try power up again. Let me know what happens.
[EDIT:] -On second thought, please define "everything": I assume this means there's a primary boot-drive present with W10, a working power supply and RAM installed?
