well after i flashed I started getting the 3 red lights after a period of time. I cracked open the box once again and started tinkering and I havnt had the red lights since. id have 3 red lights as soon as i turn it on.. so i started messin with shit while its on. and I barely touched the sata cable and power cable on the dvd drive and no more red lights.. i moved them some more and they came back. So i just replaced the whole sata cable and now i havnt had the issue at all.
