Flashing Bios Killed Xbox?

-HDD: Western Digital, 120GB
ModChip: Xecuter 3 CE + Xapter
-Case: Ghost Case, Green
-When I was flashing the BIOS: It took perhaps 10 minutes to load the next screen when I clicked UPLOAD and FLASH. Because of this, I restarted my box 2 minutes in and did it again. Nothing bad happened then. It turned on fine. The next time I waited and 10 minutes later it showed the MODCHIP IS BEING UPDATED screen on my comp. I don't know how the xbox screen install went. I do know it flash green and amber for a while then shut off.
-Problem: Xbox now only turns on for a few seconds before shutting off again.

Make sure your switches are set to on-on-off-off-off (flash the first 1M bank), and make sure you're not accidentally using the 3294 v1.6 BIOS. Try the flash again, but this time watch the flashbios screen instead of switching over and watching TV!! At least that way if there's a problem you'll see the error message!

Update: I tried the other, 1MB bank (OFF ON OFF OFF OFF) and it works fine. I have the FlashBIOS 3.0.0 blue screen. Should I try to flash another BIOS on that bank?
NO, use that bank as your recovery
once you get it up to the flashbios screen. flip the dipswitch back to the faulty flash and reflash. n try using a CD to do it.
I tried the network flash and it kill the box. had to switch to the other bank boot up using flashbios and flip the switch back to the other bank and flash using cd and all was well on that bank
