I got a Supermicro X11SSH-LN4F here with a Xeon E3-1275v6 which has an integrated graphics adapter. I know that only the integrated Aspeed grafics on the supermicro board is connected to the VGA port and also the IPMI KVM output. Strangely I can see output on the KVM but I don't see anything on the VGA monitor in early boot. Which is not very helpful because something is asking me a question there but I can't see it.

I'm trying to find out how to set the Aspeed card to the primary one and the Intel one as a secondary so even in early boot everything is displayed via the Aspeed card.

An alternative would be to temporary disable the intel card via kernel cmdline but I can't find out how to do that.

I'm running Arch linux with a 5.6 kernel on it and the intel gpu driver should also be the current version. Does anyone know how to get me a screen output on my VGA monitor?

In the end I would like the same behaviour as this: How to be able to use IPMI yet have graphics acceleration with a discrete graphics card?

Only difference is that I don't have an external graphics card but the intel integrated one.
