i "solved" the probkem.
Use a DVI->VGA Adapter and connect your Monitor (if it is Oldschool enough) via VGA
Buy a cheap PCI Video card
I tried both and it worked.
As many people already figured out, after 4 days of wasted time and efforts i totally agree "the Intel 4 Serie Mainboards are the worst Intel product ever fabricated".
It is hard to say that for me, as i am a long time Intel customer (since 1998).
In just 4 days i encountered nearly every described and known problem with the 4 Series.
Starting at very very problematic BIOS Updates ( i ended up with a custom Freedos Image using and old iflash.exe Version from 2008 ) just to flash the BIOS.
Over the described Video Bug, which is really cheap and awfull by the way.
Ending with the fact das none of this Boards seems to able to support other vendors EFI Option ROMs correctly.
The only reply you get from support is "If it is not working then there is nothing we can do".
Every IT Expert knows that an answer like this is not true by any means.
So for me there is only one thing left to say.
I cant stop thinking about the fact, that Intel has released such crap...
with greetings from Berlin,
I have just invested in a DG43NB, a bunch of hard-drives and an expensive RAID card just to come to realize that no matter what settings I apply in the BIOS, the on board video card seems to be disabled when I insert the RAID card in the PCIe x16 slot.
Is there any way around this apart from buying more hardware? Shouldn't the BIOS NOT attempt to use my RAID card as a graphics card when I select the onboard graphics card (IGD) as the primary? I would love a BIOS update that takes care of this, any chance of this happening?
Word, I hear you. I feel the same way. At the very least, thanks for the advance notice!! It's like they are saying "Our product is the best!! You'll love it! It handles the latest video demands flawlessly! (except if you actually use the latest video technology...then it's totally worthless. But you'll find that out soon enough. Enjoy, sucker!)
have you successfully use your raid card with intel dg45id ? Could you share your configuration ?
I do have a same problem, and i using dvi-to-vga adapter just to have a video output from dg45id, but unfortunately my raid storage controller card isnt working (using supermicro aoc-saslp-mv8).
Any suggestion ?
