AFAIK the cromwell bios can ONLY boot linux.
people are working towards a Linux disc with all the nesasary tools/bios on the disk.
(dont have or not even see this disc. only read about people looking into it)
so that you install the chip
boot up the linux disc
then flash the mod to a more suitable bios
then install all your Evox stuffs.
the other choice is if you have a mate or access to another xbox with an lcp chip.
you can boot up the other xbox with its chip and when booted to evox you can swap the chip out for your new chip and then flash you chip.

|So what is the point with getting a cromwell bios? I just want to use EvoX not Linux. If the Xecuter2 Lite comes with a cromwell bios, how come it says it searches for and launches Exolution X, and if that is not there, it launches the Default M$ dash? Well, if i have to flash a new bios on the lite, i might as well get the pro so i can easily flash it before or after installing it.|
the Cromwell bios the X2L is shipping with now is done for legal reasons, since having a hacked MS XBOX BIOS on it is illegal

yes cromwell only boots linux. BUT if you use ozxflash (a linux program, freely avail), you can flash the chip with any bios you like. then your chosen bios (evox, executer2 4726.02 etc etc) will boot your evolution x dashboard cd.
i know this cos ive done it
