AMD 7970 + Nvidia 670 black screen on login with AMD primary

I have the above older cards, both work OOB and are supported. I prefer to have the AMD as the primary card and the Nvidia there in case I want to run an application with CUDA.


The problem is that the screen will be black on login when plugged in to the AMD card. At that point I can switch the output to the Nvidia and it will work fine. I haven't tested with the AMD in the secondary slot, but it doesn't matter, since I also want to be able to see the boot process taking place, which means having my monitor plugged into the primary card.


I'm really at a loss for troubleshooting this, I've tried adding various lilu-based "fixes" to the kext directories on the EFI/Clover part of the EFI partition. Installing Nvidia web drivers didn't help, either. Thanks in advance.

      Hello everybody.
      I have a HP Pavilion DV6-6B55SG and it has two Graphics. A integrated Intel HD 3000 and a AMD Raedon 6770M.
      I'm running Mountain Lion and it only uses the Intel HD 3000.
      It looks like this:
      So I read a lot of threads about it, and every thread ended like "there is no solution, until you can disable your onboard graphics".
      Well, I figured out how to disable it and this might be interesting for all HP owners.
      When you reboot press F10 and when it says Bootmenu is loading press a. Then you will see the advanced boot menu.
      My Bios vendor is Insyde and the version is F.19.
      The settings look like this:
      But when i put "Internal Graphics Device" (Link 3) from Auto to Disable, and then restart I will get a blackscreen and have to do a hard Bios reset, by taking out the RTC Battery
      Does anyone know, which settings I need to change?
      For example Primary Display. It's on SG (Switchable Graphics), but can be put on PEG, PCI, Auto.
      Or is there any other solution for this problem?
      Thank you for every help.
