I just got my hands on a new IIfx upgrade board (not the one that just sold on eBay for 600, I actually lost that) from an old Apple dev I met on Facebook. The thing was pristine but of course I recapped it to eliminate variables, and after getting all the parts together it's not booting. Instead what happens is the power supply comes to life, and the two floppy drives start firing off like crazy and chirp wildly for a second. There's no boot chime or death march chord, and the speaker/psu/drives all worked fine when this was still just a IIx. Any suggestions? I'm getting desperate to get the thing working. I haven't found anyone else online with this issue and all the books including dead Mac scrolls couldn't give me anything either...
