    Ok thanks for all the assistance, we got it running. It's a very nice laptop, just a shame nvidia doesnt provide drivers.

    Actually it was my friend from Venisuala. He didnt tell me exactly what he did. But the links helped him. He did mention something about using the correct modle for his machine. He had a MSI and had to add the correct MSI video card to the .ini file? Maybe?

    I managed to get this working last night. Here's what I did (proceed at your own risk!):
    1. Get yourself a decent text editor like Sublime Text that has find-in-files.
    2. Download the most recent supported 880M drivers from the NVidia site. For me that was 425.31.
    3. Tell the NVidia site you want drivers for the 860M and download those. That got me 445.75.
    4. Extract both files to different folders (I used 7zip)
    5. Run Device Manager, select the 880M device adapter, go to 'details', and from the 'properties' dropdown select 'Hardware ID'
    6. The second line of the properties box should look something like this (don't worry if some of the numbers are different):
      PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1198&SUBSYS_74811558
    7. Right click on that line and select 'copy'
    8. Open Sublime Text and search the 425.31 folder for that string.
    9. The file you find it in is the same manufacturer-specific file you'll need to modify in the 445.75 folder, so open THAT file as well. For me it was nvcvi.inf
    10. In the 445.75 file, do a search for 860M. You should find one or more lines that look like this: NVIDIA_DEV.1392.2300.1558 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M"
    11. Again, the numbers might be different. Copy the left part of that line (NVIDIA_DEV.1392.2300.1558) and search again just in this file.
    12. You should find a line further up that looks like this: %NVIDIA_DEV.1392.2300.1558% = Section004, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1392&SUBSYS_23001558
    13. Make a note of the SectionXXX number.
    14. Go back to the 425.31 inf file where you found your hardware ID and copy the whole line containing it.
    15. Go to the 445.75 inf file again and paste your line in under the one you just found. Modiy the SectionYYY bit of the line to SectionXXX.
    16. Go to the 425.31 inf file to the line containing your hardware id, and this time search for the bit between the %%, eg %NVIDIA_DEV.1198.7481.1558% = Section004, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1198&SUBSYS_74811558
    17. You should find a line like this one: NVIDIA_DEV.1198.7481.1558 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M"
    18. Copy this line and paste it into the 445.75 inf file down near the bottom under the matching one for the 860M.
    19. Do an unsigned drivers boot and run setup.exe in the 445.75 folder.
    If you experience any problems (I didn't), go back to the 445.75 file and look again at the line for the 860M:

    NVIDIA_DEV.1392.2300.1558 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M"

    The bolded number (whatever it may be in your file) is the bit that means '860M'. Search for it and you might find an entry that has a different SectionZZZ number.
    Try modifying the line you added to use that section number instead.

    Good luck!
