[SOLVED] Selecting proxmox primary boot graphics card

I recently bough a supermicro c246 chipset motherboard with built in BMC graphics. My processor is i3-8100 with built in igd. I am trying to use the intel graphics for GVT-g but i would like proxmox to display the console only using the BMC graphics so if something goes wrong i can use iKVM. Currently, proxmox chooses igd as primary display after bootloader thus i loose the ability see anything though iKVM. It works fine, if i blacklist intel igd but I loose the ability to do GVT-g.

Since Coffee Lake GVT-g is not supported yet in the current Proxmox kernel (5.0.18-1pve), I solved my issue by using "pci-stub.ids=xxxx:xxxx" function.
