Unless the video controller in that box can handle two ports from one
chipset, you won't get dual headed display. On the Lombard, MacOS seemed
to handle this situation, and I got the display set up in MacOS to show
the same desktop on both screens, then booted Linux and the display came
up on the attached projector only. Somewhat of a hassle but it worked.
