Based on your stats...it seems as though you have much more experience than this at me, though from what you are explaining, it sounds like an LPC problem. Did you do a wire install? If so, it is very likely the lpc wires are shorting. Cramming 10 wires into those points is ridiculous and near impossible to prevent shorting on the first try. Check to see if bare wire is touching other bare wire and check for solder bridges and give it a try. The same thing happened to me, the xbox worked with the chip off, and when the chip was on, all the lights and leds came on...but no flashbios screen. I snipped the wire ends so short it was impossible to short with other wires, resoldered, taped them down and sure enough on the first try i got the flash bios screen.
