I'm working with a board that has a problem with parallel loading. It's A Spartan 3 FPGA with an XCF08P flash.
The firmware loads without issues when serial configuration is set (M bits: "000") . However, it doesn't work with parllel loading (M bits: "110").
Any ideas ?

There are a number of possible causes for such problems. You should post the board schematics if you want to pursue this problem further in these forums, so we can see a bit more of what you see.

when you program the xcf prom with iMPACT, did you forget to check the Parallel option?
You not only want to set the mode pins for FPGA, but also want to enable the Parallel register inside PROM.
