(apologies if wrong forum -- descriptions are pretty vague)

No point using potential hash power of a mining card when there're integrated graphics. Is it possible to force Windows (or through BIOS?) to display on a monitor using only the integrated graphics so the dedicated graphics cards can... you know.... dedicate themselves to mining?

Would this be theoretically possible if an easy-to-implement solution doesn't already exist?


Cheers.

 Of course! I use integrated HD4250 (primary display) + 5770. Working without any problems. Even playing skyrim without losing any hashes on 5770.

The first is by definition not flawed.

Would setting my BIOS to use the integrated GPU as the primary adapter do what I want?

Yep.
Fancy. Thanks.  Smiley

ETA: Oh -- I'm guessing I'll have to plug my KVM video adapter into the integrated's video output?

Well, you need to see what's on intergrated gpu display, right?  Smiley First setup in bios the integrated GPU as the primary adapter, then plug in its output to monitor.
