Description

For my home server, I would like to try OI. But when disabling the on-board NIC in the bios (because I have an Intel pci-e card), the installation images fail to boot. All that is visible are two blue-ish bars on the top and bottom of the screen. When I enable the NIC again, they boot to the installer just fine. With they, I mean I have tried the following usb images: OI 148, OI 151 dev, OSOL 134 and even S11EX. They all fail to even show the GRUB boot message (3 second countdown) when the on-board NIC is disabled.

My hardware is as follows:
MSI H67MA-E45 (with the to-disable on-board Realtek RTL8111E)
Intel Core i5 2400 with IGP
16 GB ram
(disks don't really matter I suppose)

I will try my best to provide additional information when needed.
