Default Retina Macbook Pro

Anyone getting the drivers to work on this? For now I am trying to get it working with no switching between the onboard intel and nvidia.

When starting X I get:

Code:
(II) Setting vga for screen 0.
(**) NVIDIA(0): Depth 24, (--) framebuffer bpp 32
(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 888
(==) NVIDIA(0): Default visual is TrueColor

(II) UnloadModule: "ramdac"
(II) UnloadModule: "wfb"
(II) UnloadModule: "fb"
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
In dmesg I get:

Code:

NVRM: failed to copy vbios to system memory.
NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x30:0xffffffff:858)
NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed
Suggestions?

Not totally sure it can help me when I can't even get the regular nvidia drivers to work at all? I have the vga_switcheroo enabled in my kernel but doesnt give me any options in /sys. Also for now I want to just use my nvidia discrete graphics. In the future it would b enice to have proper support for power saving but right now I just would like a working system =(.

EDIT: actually gonna try just compiling the bbswitch module and using that.

EDIT2:

bbswitch: version 0.4.2
bbswitch: Found discrete VGA device 00000:01:00.0: \_SB_.PCI0.P0P2.GFX0
bbswitch: failed to evalueate _DSM {0xA0,0xA0,0x95,0x9D,0x60,0x00,0x48,0x4D,0xB3,0x4D ,0x7E,0x5F,0xEA,0x12,0x9F,0xD4} 0x102 0x0 {0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00}: AE_BAD_PARAMETER
bbswitch: No suitable _DSM call found.

Not real great when you don't have working X.

Anyway I was able to get the driver to initialize by booting into EFI mode; however it errors out.

Do those things have an accessible BIOS? If yes, you might be able to select 'dedicated GPU only' there?
