Nope, pretty sure it wont boot no video with only one connector when it's needing two as i ran into a situation..a few of them people bringing back custom PC's i built for them stating no video and somehow they or their kids got into their gear and one of the two power connectors were unplugged and soon as i plugged in the unplugged connector..video was back.
