I cant believe no one has just answered this yet.
You go into your BIOS by probably hitting Delete or F2 while restarting your computer.Install your graphics card.
Go into your Advanced settings an there should be an option for Dual graphics in your XMP or UMA.One of them will offer you the ability to use from 128MB to 2GB of ram for video.That is not the setting you are looking for.it will specifically ask you to turn on Dual graphics.
Once this is done.Log in an an make sure your connection for video is hooked up to your APU.Not your graphics card.Now mind you This is the way i remember it.Things may have changed an you will need to hook it up to the Graphics card but that is not dual graphics the way i remember it.
Things change.None the less.Once this is done.You go into your driver an from there you will see an option in Overdrive area.From there you will be granted access to Dual graphics.If it was not already activated.That is all you have to do.Congrats.
I have none of those settings called xmp or uma and nothing that says dual graphics
there is a gfx settings
under it is has options for primary video device, integrated graphics, and UMA frm buffer size
i set primary device to IGD video. other choices are nb pcie slot video and sb pcie slot videoe
i set integrated graphics to force. other choices are auto and disabled
i set uma buffer to 2gb to match the discrete card memory size
then i attached the video cable to the onboard graphics output on the motherboard.
AND i get no dual graphics.

Sorry i formatted another drive again.An had to reinstall stuff.OK hang on.
Those should make it easier.Mind you.Depending on which motherboard manufacture you have the method will be different.
That motherboard is not my motherboard, that apu is not my apu, that catalyst is no longer in use with the new crimson drivers.
That aside, there is no setting in the crimson software that allows me to select dual graphics mode with my r7 apu graphics and my r7 250 graphics card.
The setting is not there. How else can i say it? I have done this before just like this video shows and it doesn't work.
If it had worked i wouldn't have come to the forum asking for help.
And while i thank you for the effort. You're not actually helping. Not fault to you on that. It simply isn't showing the setting in the amd software. If it did I wouldn't be asking for help.
also that bios is not my uefi.
Also one video shows connecting dual graphics with the monitor connected to the onboard card for dual graphics mode and the other video shows the monitor connected to the discrete card for dual graphics mode.
Your videos don't even keep the story straight and i have tried it both ways.
and none of these shows anyone using windows 10
Does anyone have the ability to offer assitance with r7 apu and r7 250 discrete card and windows 10?
Warsun, your videos are out of date. Notwithstanding that i installed catalys 15.7.1 for windows 10 just like he did it and i get no crossfire.

Sorry i was gone.What?You should get Dual Graphics.Not crossfire.You cannot get crossfire from this combination.Crossfire using the APU is called Dual graphics.An that video should be up to date.Because the method is the same.However yeah.That is not the same motherboard........SSSsssoooooooo.....Yeah.Hard to help.You can figure it out though.its not hard.
