Hi all!
Sorry if this is the wrong section, I just dont know where else to put it :banghead:
So I have a laptop (specs can be found below) from which I know I can hackintosh it, I don't mind that the wifi doesnt work. So now for me to fully use it I want to run programs like premiere pro, unreal engine ect which basically require my dedicated gpu, my problem is I have no options for anything in my bios (aptio bios). Would any1 know how to disable my intergrated graphics or make sure those programs use my dedicated gpu.

Please help!

(specs)
CPU: Intel® Core™i5 Dual Core Mobile Processor i5-4210M (2.60GHz) 3MB
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 940M - 2.0GB DDR3 Video RAM - DirectX 12
RAM:
8GB KINGSTON HYPER-X IMPACT 1600MHz SODIMM DDR3

Not possible with switched dual-GPU configuration like Nvidia Optimus. The Nvidia is routed through the integrated device.
