Separate X screens on x86 Solaris 11.3

Good morning,

I` am trying to make a separate X screens on x86 machine
Dell XE2 Intel i5 2.5Ghz .
Video : Xeon E3-1200 v3/4 Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics processor

Using Solaris 11.3
Release: kernel SunOS 5.11
Gnome 2.30.2
So right now I have tried to change /etc/X11/xorg.conf by adding in:
Section “device”
Identifier “intel0”
Driver “intel”
Option “ZaphodHeads” “DP1”
Option “AccelMethod” “sna”
BusID “0:2:0”
The same for second device except Indetifier “intel1” and Option Zahodheads “HDMI”
In selection “ServerLayout” 
Screen 0 “screen0”
Screen “screen1” LeftOf  “screen0”
And a second Sections for Monitor and Screen

As I restart Xserver , Xserver does not start. In Log /var/log/Xorg.0.log I see “ (EE) no screens found”
When I comment line Option - “AccelMethod” “sna” I can start it again, but it starts as twin view.

While Xserver is working I see in log file 2 screens- DP1 and HDMI

I did try xrandr , but no luck, ( xrandr see only 1 screen)
I know that that if I could use Nvidia video card then everything would be ok, but I can`t.

Any ideas how to make separate x screens on x86 using intel integrated video?

Did you look for a log file here:

Yes. But I don't remember any difference between these two files. Later I will check once more.
Is that even possible to make separate x screens using intel? I did study google for few days and didn't find any working solution or that someone said that they did make it work.

Is a screen number missing?

Screen 0 “screen0”
Screen “screen1” LeftOf  “screen0”

maybe look more like:
Screen 0 “screen0”
Screen 1 “screen1” LeftOf  “screen0”

sorry that was my mistake, when I overwrite the code. there is
Screen 1

I did try
Option      "AccelMethod"  "uxa"

the same output, same error.
