Curious if the Special Edition OS is this. Was there more than one? If anyone knows feel free to comment. Below is a pic of the Special Edition welcome screen on the DX7. I reached out to Retro Gear, and they don't know either. They just noticed the start up screen.

Update: pic of the chip added below. Note the chip reads SCR-7, while the OS link reads Special Edition ROM (SER-7). Guessing it's the same, but who knows...
