optimus disabled GT680M not working on built-in display

this may just be how it is, but i got the impression you could use the GT680M so long as it was the only enabled GPU. i've unlocked the BIOS on my alienware m17x r4 and disabled the HD4000, but when macOS starts the display doesnt seem to fire, it just sits with the verbose text output.

 

if i boot from the install USB then i just get the display complely black, as in 'off'

 

should it be possible or are LVDS/built-in displays just simply not compatible?
