    I posted this in the Windows on Mac forum but not much of a response so here is my question, maybe someone can help me. Is there any way I can change from discrete to the integrated graphics on Windows 7? I know how to do this on OS X but can't figure this out on Windows, if there is a way. Upon startup, I am not able to go into the bios because of bootcamp. Is there any other way to do this? I am just trying to save battery if and when I use windows. Thanks!

    On the fence
    I don't believe there is a way to use the integrated graphics in bootcamp.

    You are correct. Apple doesn't provide driver support for the switching mechanism in windows. You can only use the discrete GPU
