I know, i know, i know... @svl7 said it's disabled, @octiceps said it's disabled and many other forum users said it's disabled.
I am always want to double check everything and i did it this time too. And i would like to post here result of my research. But first thing first - my PC:
Laptop Configuration: Lenovo Y500 SLI
CPU: Intel i7-3630QM (2400-3400 MHz, Ivy Bridge, QuadCore)
VGA: 2x 2048Mb NVIDIA GeForce GT650M (SLI Configuration)
MB: Compal LA-8692P
RAM: 2x 4Gb Ramaxel RMT3160ED58E9W1600 (11-11-11-28)
HDD: 1TB Seagate Momentus 5400 (ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB)
SSD: 120 Gb Samsung 850 EVO (MGX S4LN062X01)
Display: 15.6" LG\Philips LP156WF1-TLC1 (1920x1080)
WIN: MS Windows 10 Pro (x64)
Also i must say, that i have got UNLOCKED BIOS by @svl7. And for second VGA too.
It's beginning from @geraldthread about his Ultrabay to PCI-E Adapter for Lenovo Y510p for useing Radeon Desktop VGAs as external VGA. It's performed well with Y510p, but there was zero info about how it perform on Y500 or will it perform at all (now we know that it's no, but it's another story). Unlocked BIOS didn't help with adapter and i decided to dig more deep in re-enabling integrated GPU in Intel CPU - Intel HD Graphics 4000. And new unlocked BIOS give me a lot of new options to play. But important thing is... some of them working, some of them no. So, here is what i am founded.
First i go to new unlocked BIOS and saw there a lot new tabs.
I go to Advanced => Video Configuration => Special Features
This option already was Enabled (Switch Graphic Function)
After that i go to Internal Graphic Device and Enable Internal Graphics Device.
Then save changes and exit. Laptop is shutdown and after few seconds turn on again. I saw Lenovo loading screen and then nothing when loading complete. Windows didn't start.
I am restarted laptop three times and it's started recovery mode. From recovery mode i am loaded Safe Mode and at that point i am finally was at Windows.
My first way goes to Device Manager to see new device. And there was new device - Intel HD Graphics 4000.
In safe mode windows can't access to it's current status, but there also was no error codes. First time there was no driver installed, but now it's even have last driver!
After that i go to AIDA64 Engineer Edition and look what it's show me. It's saw iGPU!
So, at this point i don't what to think about it. I can see iGPU in safe mode, but i can't boot with it in normal Windows. Is AIDA64 lie to me or even Device Manager?
What do your think about it?
P.S. Oh yeah, most menus on Russian language, but i hope your got the idea and trust me. =) It's no fake.

Hi, I have a Clevo P170EM with an AMD 7970M. Last year I tried to change the vBIOS of my 7970M, a friend of my tried to change it because he wanted to ''overlock'' the card. He said no worries I said okay do it, then later on he returned my laptop and bricked both my card and the normal BIOS. I had to repair the laptop trough a repair company in the city. They only could repair the BIOS by doing another BIOS on it. They said to try everything with the card but my laptop wouldn't accept it. The problem: After the Windows 10 installation I installed all the drivers from the manufacters site (http://www.eurocom.com/ec/drivers(226)ec). Including the SSD driver, then I FIRST installed and fully updated the Intel HD Graphics. After that I installed the AMD videocard drivers (crimsons edition), the weird part is, AMD autodetect sees my card and so does Windows. Then the driver ask me to restart my laptop, after restarting the Windows logo appears then the screen goes black with a blinking cursor left upper screen. I believe it has someting to do with the vBIOS of the card and I also believe that the card is not bricked but just wrong BIOS. I asked the manufacter and they say that the card may be bricked, when I ask for the BIOS they would not provide it for free (bastards). I asked for both the motherboard and AMD card BIOS, they said I have to pay for it. Question: Can someone provide information and files for the right vBIOS? I mean the vBIOS that is standard. Greetz, Jamie P.s I have some pictures and screenshot of Windows and the BIOS detecting the graphic card, the weird thing is both OS and BIOS detect the card but when I install the drivers it goes black P.s.s I already tried everything AMD support provided so I have no use for comments like ''Try unistall with DDU'' or try with second monitor etc. As you can see I've disabled the card because when I enable, Windows freezes and screen goes black.
I have a big problem-> I need to undervolt my GPU (MSI 7970M@DELL_BIOS).
I am using this vBIOS: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/132831/dell-hd7970m-2048-120629
Stock VDDC on this GPU is 1.050V and when I changing this one to 0.975 in VBE7 it is ok-> I can save it and flash it. Computer succesfully restarts but when I check modded settings the VDDC is still on 1.050V
I checked if the VBE7 seriously saving the VDDC to vBIOS but it is ok. I have no idead what i need to UV this card (i know it's possible...)
Everything is changing (GPU, MEM MHz) but VDDC can't change.
Please help me ;-)
