It is not supported. Replace with compatible hardware. Compatible chipsets and the procedures for making them work are covered here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/network/104850-guide-airport-pcie-half-mini-v2.html

Graphics questions are off-topic here.


The discrete graphics capability in a switched dual-GPU configuration is not supported with OS X on hacks. Best you can do is disable the discrete part with SSDT/DSDT patches.

I understand that you told me that i can disable intel hd 3000 to be able to use nvidia gt630m?


If I understand correctly, i ask you if you know a guide to do this.

No. You misunderstand. Read post #4 carefully.

I'll highlight for you:
The discrete graphics capability in a switched dual-GPU configuration is not supported with OS X on hacks. Best you can do is disable the discrete part with SSDT/DSDT patches.

It says nothing about disabling the integrated part and using the discrete part, as that is not possible with a switched dual-GPU configuration such as Nvidia optimus.

Note also:
Graphics questions are off-topic here.
