Install windows 7 without monitor?

Hey guys, I just built my computer and am having some trouble in terms of my monitor and it's connection with my computer. The computer takes a dvi cable whereas my monitor takes a vga. They both can use hdmi but the problem is that I recently read that hdmi doesn't display an image until windows is booted so I'm currently trying to install windows from the disc without any picture on my monitor. Any ideas as to how I can do this. I know I can use a TV or monitor with a vga or get a dvi to vga chord but I kinda want it done tonight

Thanks xx

I've read about the hdmi problem too but dont know whether it afficts all boards or just some specific ones. If it does afflict your board, you have a problem if you want to install immediately. Installing win7 without a monitor would require an unattended disk which needs to be created E.g. with vlite. See here:
