How to Disable Internal Display from BIOS?

Although it is possible to set HDMI display as primary display from BIOS, the non-exist internal display causes a lot of trouble. Specifically, Ubuntu 17.10 sets internal display as primary display and it is not easy to switch to HDMI display without seeing the desktop content. Also, other Linux distributions like to automatically connect to internal display on boot. Since I don't have a display to connect to the board, how to permanently disable it from BIOS?
I'm using 4G version of Lattepanda.

2019-01-27 01:47:25 I'm trying to get opensuse running on my latte panda 4g/64. I've updated the bios, installed opensuse, but when it boots, I am brought to a blank screen with only the use of a mouse pointer. The internal display seems to be the active desktop, but I only have a monitor hooked up through hdmi. I thought I would be able to disabled the internal display through the bios, by:

BIOS->"Chipset"->"North Bridge"->"IGD - LCD Control"->"Force Lid Status"->"Off" .

... as mentioned above, but with no luck. I have also tried to toggle:

BIOS->"Chipset"=>"North Bridge"->"Intel IGD Configuration"->"Primary Display".

Are there any other options that I can try?

Look forward to your update!
