It is possible. Look in Atlas Users Manual Sec 5.2 . Dip switch S1-1
controls booting from either Monitor Flash or System Flash. If you boot
from System Flash then the monitor is effectively removed. You would of
course have to have your own boot-up code, PCI enumerator, hardware init,
kernel loader, kernel image, etc.  in the System Flash all hooked to the
reset vector for this to work.
