You may be lucky and it could have an x2 bios on it already. I have brought about 30 2.2's and they have all come pre flashed with x2 4977 & M7.

When it boots up look under the big green X on the boot screen. Does it say Xecuter2? if it does you are all set. If it says MS you could have an M7. Try the bank select switch in both positions.

The best test is to burn a CD-RW with Evox and see if it boots.

Cheers.

Then you might have an M7. Try a boot disk and see if it boots unsigned code.

*Edit* M7 is the bios by the EvolutionX guys. Only the bios's by Team Xecuter have customised text under the X.

Xecuter 2.3's all come preflashed with cromwell/FlashBIOS... not anything else unless the distributor decided to reflash them for you.

you have one of two problems (or possibly both.. I can't tell cause I can't see the solder job)

1. Your d0 point has come loose and isn't grounding

2. Your switch doesn't work on the switch assembly

first.. redo the d0 point and use the alt d0.. not the top d0

if that doesn't fix your problem then try installing a separate spst switch that you can get at radioshack between the d0 and ground.
