If your laptop has a hardware mux, the kernel switcheroo driver may be able to set the wanted GPU at boot. There are also hacks based on the switcheroo, like asus-switcheroo, but they offer no extra value. If one of the hacks happens to work, and the switcheroo does not, the switcheroo has a bug. There might already be pending patches waiting to go towards the mainline kernel. If your laptop has a hardware mux, the kernel switcheroo driver may be able to set the wanted GPU at boot.
