Thanks for your response, Dan.

I have seen some older reports about kernel issues and crashes. Hence my
concern.

I presume that the built-in graphics system can be disabled from the BIOS
(or UEFI) and a stock standard graphics card used instead. Would I be
correct in assuming that?

Please copy me in as I am not subscribed to the list.
