    Man I am sorry I am totally lost. I seriously have no idea what you're rambling about there. Its like I'm responding a drunk. You need to find a better web translator or something.

    Ok now I think I have it. I am not sure if the MSI vBios on the Clevo card will work. I was actually just working on flashing the card and decided not to risk it this minute. I am not fully sure this card will run on MSI vBios, or if the laptop will still recognize the card after. I'm not sure why it wouldn't, but still haven't flashed the card yet.

    If it does work, there should be no need to use modified INF drivers. You should be able to use Nvidia drivers downloaded from the website as usual.

    @Ken GenTech

    Can you tell me where the MSI 6GB 970m vBios came from? Is it from a GS60/70? I am thinking about flashing it to my Clevo card but not sure if it will play nice since that is from a non MXM laptop. Maybe this doesn't matter?

    It will be a gt72. Extracting it from a non mxm machine would be a lot harder.

    Thanks Meaker!

    Isn't the GT72 a non Optimus laptop? Would this matter since I have an Optimus laptop? I just don't want to flash this vBios and end up with a bricked card. Just trying to ask as many questions before I try and flash this vBios Ken dumped for me.

    The GTX970M in the GS Serie and GT60 2QD/GT702QD has only 3GB vRAM... so i think the 6GB vBIOS is from the GT72. And it´s true, the GT72 don´t have Optimus.

    So do you think they have disabled the Optimus in the vBios, or does the GT72 not even have Optimus available and it therefore doesn't work at all?

    If the vBios has Optimus enabled I should be able to flash the vBios to the Clevo card.
