c8000 + firegl X3

Hi,
I got c8000 with damaged fire gl x1.
I decided to buy another one, but found x3 and bought it.
During bootup it hangs. Front led is blinking green, rear led no. 1 is on and green.
I used BCH to find the problem.
The last chasis code is:
CC_BOOT_INIT_SS_CONS
I bought the card from guy using it in PC.
There is no monitor connected to card yet.
Firmware is 2.13
Keyboard and mouse is connected.
Without card in, system boots up with warning (no graphics) but works perfectly.

Could it be that:
- monitor has to connected ?
- there are different firegl x3s (for HP and PC) ?

For any help - thank you in advance.

Re: c8000 + firegl X3

So that means that my card needs bios change.
Does anybody can help me and put right for c8000 bios for firegl x3 in the thread?

That would be really nice and helpful.
