Difference between disabling VGA via Jumper and via BIOS


Feb 25, 2020

I have a Supermicro H11SSL-NC with a NVIDIA Quadro P2000. When switich the VGA Priority in the BIOS from onboard to offboard the graphic card should output a picture, but doesn't - the screen gets no input signal (maybe due to the NVIDIA bug: GeForce GTX and DisplayPort, you have a black screen? Nvidia releases a patch - OptoCrypto)

In order to install the new GPU firmware to fix the bug, I have to use a VGA port. But IPMI does not allow me to chage that setting, which means I have to reset the CMOS.

My question: Is disabling the VGA port via Jumper (JPG1) equal to switching from "onboard" to "offboard" in the BIOS?
