BIOS settings for 2 PCI VGA cards on Proliant 150ML G2

I would like to be able to use 2 dvi monitors with my Proliant ML150 G2.

One way to do it is to use two PCI VGA cards, each with a DVI head. (I am not aware of any PCI/PCI-X dual-head VGA cards).

However, my ML150 G2 does not boot if two PCI VGA cards are inserted. It boots fine if either card is plugged (which means the cards are fine).

I have looked at BIOS settings but did not find anyhing which would allow me to alter the boot process as far as VGA cards are concern.

Does anyone know workarounds?

Thank you in advance.

Why not get a PCIe card with dual DVI?

Ml150 G2 has only PCIe x4 slot.

All known to me PCIe cards need x16.
