I'm running with the M11x R2, and I recently got Windows 8 Customer preview because I was getting so many problems, and I just wanted a clean slate to work from. I forgot that the M11x R2 runs the optimus system to change between the Intel GFX card, and the Nvidia. Now I can't figure out how to make the computer run the NVIDIA card, and going to the NVIDIA control panel doesn't work.
Has anyone dealt with this problem, or does anyone know how to?
(P.S. any idea when command center will be compatible with windows 8?)
have you tried pressing the fn & f7 keys at sametime and then reboot?

I have Windows 8 installed on my M11x R1 and had to go into the bios and set it to use the discreet graphics card to get it to work. Although most of the other FN + key combinations work I can't get the wireless on/off toggle to work or the graphics mode toggle to work.
