Hi!

This is my first post here and I would have a question to ask you guys.
Me and my friend are building his first custom pc and we are ready to put it together but we don't have a graphics card yet and the motherboard doesn't have a vga or a dvi port so we cant connect it to his monitor, but it has a HDMI port.
My question is: Can I connect the motherboard hdmi slot up with the tv's one and install the os, hdd and download the drivers to the motherboard so the pc will be ready when my friend gets his money for the video card?
I have heard that you have to choose the hdmi to be the output signal from the BIOS which would be impossible as I cant do it without a screen.

The motherboard he chose is a Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA1155

Not without a video card or video controller of some sort, which this board has none of - Excellent IMO I hate integrated video.

The primary output will be hdmi so connecting it to any monitor or tv should give you picture without drivers.
