While the BIOS may not have the ability to disable the on-board i810, have
you looked for jumpers on the m/b?

Make sure you don't have a monitor plugged in to the i810 vga port when 
you boot to do this.  I have a brain damaged i810 that autoconfigures 
depending on what is plugged into the port.  It's possible the bios will 
disable the i810 if there is no monitor plugged into it.
