    Is the nvidia a dedicated or switched (Optimus?).

    Thank you so much for your answer! I'm not 100% sure about - is the card is dedicated or switched, but it's supporting Optimus technology. I'm gonna check your tutorial - thanks.
    If someone have something to say about my questions - please, feel free to write the info here.

    If it is using Optimus, then it is switched. Hopefully, you can disable it in BIOS and use just the HD4000. Otherwise, there are complications during install (you may have to remove all NV* GeForce* kexts from /S/L/E on the USB installer).
