HP Zbook 14 G2, is there a way to disable Intel Graphics

Is there a way to disable Intel integrated graphics in this model. In bios I can disable the AMD, but not the Intel. When using docking station I can only get two displays with QHD resolution and one with FullHD (VGA). I tried to connect the third display to the displayport on the laptop, but it won't work. I had same problem with my previous laptop, but when I disabled the Intel graphics from that then the displayport on laptop started to work and I could use three external displays with QHD resolution.

So is there a way to get the Intel to work with three displays without daisy chaining them, or is there a way to disable the Intel and use the AMD only?

Displayport hub helped, but is causing OS to crash some times when using multiple virtual machines.

I usually use the 'Projector' feature (FN+F4) and select 'Extend Desktop' to extend view to all three.

Before doing this though, you will need to make sure the video card sees all three displays. You do that by connecting your monitors via the connections, going into your Graphics Card properties, check the monitors it sees. You may need to select 'Detect Displays' for it to pick up the display port monitor. You should not need to do anything further as I have a few of those models in my environment and that is how we connect three displays. By 3 displays I mean 1) Laptop display, 2) external monitor via VGA port, 3) External monitor via display port DVI adapter.
 
Could you try this?

It will find only two displays with docking station, third one will work with docking station if I use VGA, but that can't give me QHD resolution. Only FullHD. I wan't to use third displayport connector that is on the laptop, but it won't find the third display. If i disconnect laptop from docking then the displayport on the laptop will work.

My zbook 17 wont allow me to use that port while on the docking station. I believe the dock port disables many of the other onboard pots in lieu of the ones on the dock.  
What I do in this case is use the vga and dvi video ports from the dock to 2 external monitors, then use the laptop monitor as well. That is the only way I think you can use three with the ZBook.

The HP site shows that I should be able to use system displayport with to displayports in docking station. My 3,5 year old HP 8470p could do this when I disabled Intel graphics on that. There must be a way to use three QHD displays with new Zbook 14 G2

Three displays work if I start 3Dmark or some other 3D application. After that stops only two displays work. HP support didn't know why it didn't work, it should work was the comment, but didn't know why it did not.

I ordered displayport hub and will try with that, or then will order new laptop.
