Integrated GPU option not showing in BIOS

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey There!

 

I had a problem with my graphics card previously (https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Software-and-How-To-Questions/Boot-Problems-Graphic-Card/m-p/6...) Which I fixed. 

 

But I have to wait around 2 Minutes during the startup so I'm off to find a new fix to this and found a possible fix for it - 

I successfully installed a fanless GT 1030 (no external power) to my Pavilion p6-2017esm without needing to wait 2 minutes on each boot and hearing those annoying beeps.
Apparently, the problem is related to the way the motherboard handles the graphics inside the BIOS, and the incompatibility with newer Nvidia GPUs (all the post-Fermi architecture GPUs). 
The good news is that the Cupertino2 motherboard integrates a VGA and a DVI-I display port for the Intel integrated GPU, and that GPU is 100% compatible with the BIOS.
All you need to do is enable the integrated GPU, so the motherboard uses it just for the BIOS startup, and then let Windows use your new Nvidia GPU.

In order to do that, you must connect your monitor to both the Nvidia and Intel GPUs.
Then, boot the PC and immediately press Esc... now wait for those beeps to stop :P 
Once the Bios Menu pops out, press F10 to access the BIOS Setup, go to Advanced, and inside Device Options, enable the Integrated Video option, and save the settings. Next time the pc boots, there won't be any beep noises or delays; your BIOS is successfully using the integrated GPU to boot up.
All what's left to do is enter the BIOS Setup again, go to Advanced, and inside PCI VGA Configuration, set the Nvidia GPU as the primary card by pressing F5. That way your PC will always boot Windows with the Nvidia GPU.
Once you reboot, everything should work perfectly. You don't even need to keep the DVI cable plugged in the Intel integrated GPU, you can unplug it and the mobo will still think that it's connected (seriously, I’ve never seen such a buggy motherboard in my life :D but it’s cool that you can at least take advantage of its defects)

Now you can try to boot or install Windows and see how it goes.

I’m using Arch Linux and my GT 1030 works without problems, I can even enjoy 8k videos on youtube without any issues, and play Wolfenstein 2 at 720p 30fps :P


Btw, I strongly recommend you to unplug your monitor from the integrated Intel GPU once you’re over with this fix. The cupertino2 motherboard can’t properly handle 2 GPUs running at the same time (or so it says in the official online documentation).

But the problem is that the Integrated Video option is not showing up.

It has  Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD Integrated graphics and you installed  NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 to your machine. By default,  Integrated video is not available if a graphics card is installed therefore you can't see in BIOS and DVI-D port and VGA port on the following image are disabled
