    DP45SG - booting without video card

    ashkante

      Greetings.

      I am building a system to use as a home file server based on the DP45SG board. I would like (if possible) to run it without a graphics card (less power, heat, maintenance), but I haven't had much luck so far. The original bios was 0118 and seemed to stop during POST (1 short beep, long pause, 1 short beep - as during normal boot with RAID). I upgraded to 0125 (currently latest), because I found this in the release notes:

      BIOS Version 0121

      About This Release:

      • August 28, 2009

      • SGP4510H.86A.0121.2009.0828.1117

      New Fixes/Features:

      • Enabled headless operation without graphics card.

       

      The results are the same. What am I missing?

      Is that a typo in Release Notes or a bug in BIOS?

       

      Thanks,

      Marko
