Black screen on laptop with Nvidia Optimus
|Reported by:||cb88||Owned by:||nobody|

I get a black screen apparently due to the nvidia driver getting loaded and used rather than defaulting to the Intel GPU that acutually controls the output. When I delete the nvidia.accelerant it works as expected (I installed via QEMU to the physical hard disk then found the problem when I rebooted also im using NeoGrub to boot from the windows 8 bootloader).
This is on an i7-3630QM with Nvidia Geforce GT 650M
