HP Compaq D530 SFF install PCI vga card

I have a HP Compaq d530 sff with integrated intel extreme 2 graphics (intel 82865G).

What I have is a PCI vga card (Radeon 9250 / PCI, VGA, DVI, TV-out), which im trying to install in the PCI-riser-expantion-card.

Now this doesn't work, neither graphics card will post after installation (no led blicking).

Quess there is two options, disable integrated graphics (Intel) and used two monitors on Radeon-PCI or make the two co-exist.

In the system-bios (2.43) it is not possible to disable the integrated graphics, only to set VGA IRQ.

Any clues on how to proceed ?

See chapter 6 of this reference for upgrading the graphics in a d530:

A real quick read of this looks like what you are trying to do is possible.

Hope this helps.

Yes it seems, that in section 6.5 , a line states that the integrated card is a PCI-based, and that dual PCI-vga adapters are possible.

Re: HP Compaq D530 SFF install PCI vga card

Ok, I've tried the following:

- Enabling VGA Palette Snoop (seems that this must be on for multiple PCI-VGAs)
- Disable PCI SERERR

IRQ:
- Disable USB using same IRQ as VGA
- Disable serial, parallel, front usb ports (not used)
- Disable APIC

In the PCI-IRQ list i've tried diabling the VGA, but this has no effect, every reboot set it again.
