Has someone used one of these USB 2.0 to hdmi adapters available on Amazon to access the server using a display (BIOS, install new OS, etc.)? My monitor doesn't even support VGA I believe...

https://www.amazon.com/External-Graphic ... mi+adapter

I'm considering buying one, as they can also be used with my notebook.

I have not used one, I have heard that those will work, but not for bios. They require an OS to work. The bios has no os to drive them.
The vga adapter they sell just for the mediasmart servers $60-$80 of coarse support bios.
If you find out otherwise, that would be awesome!
Good Luck
