Booting Cubi 251US without Display
« on: 12-February-20, 21:27:01 »

I'm creating a new computer set up for myself and have ran into a snag.

Hardware:
Cubi 251US. specs (I have the black i7)
Asus ZenScreen specs

Description Of Situation:
The ZenScreen is a usb external display and is not compatible with displaying bios. So I must configure Cubi headless while the monitor is plugged in until I get it to work.

I do not have a HDMI monitor that would display the bios.

I used my laptop to install Ubuntu Server 18.10 on the hard drive. I've enable and tested that operssh-server is working and a client can connect by using a usb wifi card. (My wifi card has a light that turns on once bios hands control over to Ubuntu boot process and Ubuntu loads network-manager.)

I inserted the drive into the Cubi and pressed the power button. I was thinking I would see the wifi light turn on but it didn't.

Plans

If I get Cubi to boot with Ubuntu I will create ssh connection with it with my laptop. I will install a desktop. Install the DirectLink drivers for the Zenscreen and configure it until it works.

Theory:
The bios is stopping the boot process because there is no display.

Question:
What is required to get this Cubi to boot headless so I can go in ssh and configure it to get ZenScreen working.

MSI has Cubi series and some model are for Cubi.
But all are different.

Please provide barcode first.
