    On Sony UEFI bios, no 1 option for switch integrated/dedicated.
    The integrated (Intel i7 Ivy Bridge) seems totally disabled.
    My impression is right or muxless configuration hide the integrated gpu?
    Thank you.
    Your impressions sound right, if there is no option in BIOS to disable integrated graphics, it sounds like it is just disabled by default if the hardware isn't showing up in Windows.

    So here is my steps for any of you who cannot get it to work by the steps previously described.

    1. Fresh install of 12.10
    2. Upgrade
    3. Installed Linux source and headers
      Code:
      sudo apt-get install linux-source linux-headers-generic
    4. Install official driver from AMD (13.1), run the installer and install the driver directly WITHOUT generating packages.
    5. REBOOT
    6. Run the following commands to install drivers from Andrikos ppa
      Code:
      sudo apt-get purge fglrx* 
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andrikos/ppa 
      sudo apt-get update 
      sudo apt-get -y upgrade 
      sudo apt-get --reinstall install xserver-xorg-video-intel 
      sudo apt-get -y install fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates 
      sudo aticonfig --initial -f
    7. Reboot

    Now it's time for champagne!

    Congratulations Another success-story

    Re: AMD/Intel Hybrid Graphics works

    I have packaged the latest beta version from upstream ( 13.2-beta3 ) in my PPA:
    https://launchpad.net/~andrikos/+archive/xserver/

    In my system, this version resolves the problem of hubrid fglrx/intel in quantal without the need to change anything in the intel driver (just use the default 2:2.20.9-0ubuntu2 version shipping in quantal).

    Could anyone please test these packages in your systems in order to see if this is a proper fix and if any regressions appear?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    The commands to use, are appended. Please make use you have no third party repositories messing with your X server components (e.g. xorg-edgers):
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge fglrx* 
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andrikos/xserver
    sudo apt-get update 
    sudo apt-get -y upgrade 
    sudo apt-get --reinstall install xserver-xorg-video-intel 
    sudo apt-get -y install fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates 
    sudo aticonfig --initial -f

    Re: AMD/Intel Hybrid Graphics works

    I can confirm, this method works great!

    I have a dv6 with an Intel card and HD6770M!

    In that case, I can consider it muxless (potentially hybrid) or without Intel totally mono-gpu?

    I ask because I have several problems with the AMD driver, and the only ones that work are the 13.2 beta but with some problems on startup.

    Thanks!

    Wow another bitter disappointment I trried "Originally Posted by belorios" suggestion to the "T", and got the TTY1 blackscreen after the first suggested reboot. I finished then last 7 steps with a little optimism - but NO JOY- ARGHHHHHHH.

    Thankfully for the last 2 months/14 the radeon driver has got me to 30% functionaloity in graphics - but i sure would love to get the proprietary graphics working !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And thanks for all the help so far from

    MarcoDePollo,
    and recently ....

    Well, according to Sony and Intel there is supposed to be Intel HD graphics - if you choose to configure your own E-series, it has an Intel HD option, so it is present. The spec-sheet for the CPU confirms it.

    So, in your case, I'd say it's mono-gpu, the Intel HD is disabled.

    As for the driver-troubles, well, I guess it's down to a bit of luck, really. I have only been able to use my AMD graphics on my laptop after I decided to give (K)Ubuntu Raring a spin.

    Can anyone tell me what "Install official driver from AMD (13.1), run the installer and install the driver directly WITHOUT generating packages." is ?
    A step-by-step guide for that step would be appreciated.

    Launch on your Ubuntu without parameters, 1st option.
