Unfortunately it seems that HP has a check in the firmware that only
allows booting with HP-branded graphics cards.
I have tried several brands in both C160 and C3000, and both machines
refuse to boot with non-HP graphics cards installed.
OTOH, the firmware appears fairly relaxed about unknown
SCSI/network/whatever cards. It's only graphics. Sadly :/
