I had the same problem with an x3 in a 1.6b xbox. When you try and boot the chip you get an orange amber light around the eject and no video. I installed the chip in my own xbox (v1.1) and found that it didn't have the correct flashbios installed on it. It only came with flashbios 3.0.0 and for a 1.6b you need flashbios v3.0.1 or v3.0.3. Had to send it back and have it reflashed.
