well exactly that...u do not need the switches they r just a nice option..it will cold boot from switch settings...or if no switch present ..then whatever sits in first 1Mb block...TerryHau said:I dont understan this whole dipswitch thing.
I mean, theres an option in the X3L that lets you choose a bank. So does it boot from what you choose in there, or from what the switches are on?
I've only got the main X3 bios on banks 1-4, and no matter what i set the switches to, it still boots the bios. So i don't get it.
Also, if i want to upgrade flashbios 3.0.0 to 3.0.3, which bank do i flash it to?
from there u can select the second 1M if u wish and reboot..it will continue to this until u power off and then it reverts back to booting from the first block.
It does not sound like u have your switches connected properly to me if switch settings make no difference...
it as though they r not connected hence xbox will always boot first bank.
NOTE with all switches off or no switches connected the actual bios size selected is 2M...however the x3 starts at the top of the stack and will boot the bios from the first 1M bank...if there is no bios installed here then it will not boot...
