OT: VIA-EK disabling shared memory

I got a VIA EPIA-EK board which has some advanced settings for graphics, 
you can toggle how much shared memory to allocate for graphics. Nice, 
but my device won't have a display so I'd like not to allocate any.

There is an option for disabling shared memory, but then the system 
won't boot. It hangs and I can't even enter the bios. So, I guess I have 
to find the magic combination with other options.

The manual only lists the options and recommends not to mess with them 
unless you know what you're doing. There is no mention on how to get the 
disable-shared-memory to work.

Any one got a clue?

Thanks, Erik
