Starting/Booting without GPU

Hello,

 

I have an Asus Prime Z390-A and a i5 9600KF.

 

I managed to repair some bended pins on a Z390-A Prime and i don't have an GPU yet for my rig.

 

As the CPU doesn't have an integrated graphics I was wondering if I can boot or turn on the PC and access the BIOS without an GPU card to see if the CPU and motherboard is working properly.

 

Thank you in advance.

No, it cant. You need at least integrated graphics on your cpu. Otherwise it cant display it

If you already have setup remote desktop for the machine you can get dislpay output via another PC. However that is only if you already have had it working before. Just a fun little thing i discorvered recently. :) 

Please ping or quote me if you want a response. :)

If you know someone who has even the oldest GPU you could ask them to borrow it so you can see if it works.
