Default No graphic card mod

Hello guys, i have a specific question

I have an old K7S5A, Elitegroup motherboard and i want to use it for a routerboard with Mikrotik RouterOS. The thing is that i have to plug in a agp graphic card only to start the computer, after that i have no use of the card. Somewhere i heard that is possible to mod/hack the bios so you can start the motherboard without a graphic card. If someone has experience in this it would be very helpfull.

Regards, Filip

I would think there is no way to boot a motherboard without a graphics card or an onboard VGA chip.

Like KingX13 said, I've heard about people doing this, but can't remember where. I'll have a look round too.

I seem to remember it involving either soldering on links or getting the ol' conductive pen out, but as long as you've got a steady hand, you'll be fine...
Don't ask questions, just click my rep tick. Now.
