Can disable in the BIOS. Try tapping the delete key after post test and before windows loads.
Find the device, change to disable, then save and exit.

The on board sound needs disabling in the BIOS, watch the screen closely during startup to find out which keyy needs pressing to enter the Bios Setup. Be careful not to change anything you don't intend to

you just need to go through the bios screens until you see an entry for sound on, change this to sound off. save and exit.
Unfortunately each individual bios setup tends to be different so I can't be more specific than that. Just look browse a few times, without changing anything, first to sort out what you need to change

You should be able to find the onboard sound card in Onboard Devices in BIOS

Do not worry if you change something you should not have, as the exit options offer a choice of "ignore changes and exit" this will leave the BIOS as it was.

in the Onboard Divices page i have

Have you got an "advanced" heading in the BIOS menu.
