my computer is the HP desktop Omen 880-160nl. My CPU is an Intel i8700k and my dedicated GPU is a Nvidia rtx2070.
I need to use the integrated graphics card as video output while having my dedicated graphics card working on more complex tasks like for example deep learning.
I've noticed that many other manufacturers leave this choice as a setting in the BIOS, where the user can enable or disable its integrated graphics card. In my case, instead, there is no settings in the BIOS and the integrated GPU will function only when my dedicated GPU is unplugged (I tested it removing the dedicated GPU and it works). How can I activate my integrated graphics card while the dedicated is still usable? Is there any way in which I will be able to use both graphics cards?

Thank you for your answer.
I had already found answers saying this, but they were old and I was hoping that in the meantime something could have come up to solve this problem.
I think that it is unfair to lock BIOS in this way. I paid for two devices (the two GPUs) that cannot be used in the same way as it would be possible in almost any other desktop computer. And this fact, despite being written in HP product description, surely won't pop up easily when someone is about to buy a desktop computer, as it is not an expected problem to worry about, resulting a little bit in a trap.
Anyway, thank you again for your answer, I'll mark it as a solution.
