Hello to everyone, i have surface book(1 gen) with hybrid of intel hd520 + nvidia geforce 965m.
Problem is that mint dont see nvidia as a device.

interesting thing about surface book is that 965m is that intel video is located in the display part(touchpad part) and nvidia is in the detached keyboard part. im not familiar with these hardware relations in surface book, but could it be the problem?
