    thanks for your help!
    @Barth

    Yes, AFAIK you should be supported according to the INF file details in/with SP59850.




    Ok, I'm downloading SP59850 right now and I'll write if this help.

    Someone mentioned that HP was indeed going to release a driver for my 6370M - AMD put one on their page 2 days ago. Does anyone know anything about this?
    Thanks

    Also, AMD has released AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta11 and AMD Catalyst 12.11 CAP2.

    Both the Feature Highlights and Downloads are available from the AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta Driver page.

    On HP's forum:
    Windows 8 drivers for HP notebooks with switchable graphics. - Page 51 - HP Support Forum

    4th post down, by Chaand:
    "I guess your card will get an updated drivers for windows 8 ... hence you won't be waiting for long"

    And I misread the date on the AMD driver...it was Feb 29, not Nov.

    For now SPSP59850 it's works, but I just installed them. "switchable option" <-- by clicking on the right mouse button on the dektop is working only under fixed mode and... is this normal? I thought it should be set on "dynamic" or am I wrong?

    Re: [Drivers] HP dv6-4XXX / dv6-6XXX / dv7-5XXX / dv7-6XXX / ENVY 14-2XXX / ENVY 17-2XXX (INTEL)
    Upon looking at SP59850, the Softpaq only supports some of the notebooks in this thread. Namely:


    • HP Pavilion dv6-60XX / dv6-61XX series
    • HP Pavilion dv7-60XX / dv7-61XX series



    And...well, that's it. Furthermore, the Intel driver components found in this Softpaq are older than what the current release on the first post offers.

    SP59147 (current HP release):
    9.000.0.0000 (AMD Graphics)
    9.17.10.2843 (Intel Switchable Graphics)
    8.0.0.8808 (AMD HDMI Audio)

    SP59850:
    9.000.0.0000 (AMD Graphics)
    9.17.10.2817 (Intel Switchable Graphics)
    8.0.0.8808 (AMD HDMI Audio)



    also this from another poster
    ------------

    The components from the softpaq sp59850 are infact identical to softpaq sp58788. The only difference is the cva file

    hoody, Wes from HP forum answer me, take a look. i also asked him about the partitions because i rememberd you were concerned about it:

    You're still waiting for the video driver. I've got an email to my driver contact about sp59850 and why it doesn't support the models I was told it would. As for the partitions, you can do an in-place upgrade and won't need to worry about those. Or you can do a clean-install and wipe them out. the instructions are available here: Upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8 | HP® Support.

    ===================================================================




    OK I don't quite understand what He (wes) told you Did he end up saying what? That it IS a workable driver?


    cause I also got a message from him saying he was checking with his driver contact, and to "hang on" what ever that means.
