I have a notebook HP Pavilion g6-1180sp with windows 7 64-bit with a Radeon HD 6470M and a onboard Intel card.
How can I choose to run only the Radeon card all the time and disable completely the Intel card?

Reboot, enter your BIOS setup, change from switchable graphics to "fixed". Save & exit BIOS. Boot windoze. Go to your Catalyst Control Center, find the section for configuring switchable graphics. It now gives you a choice of whether your setting is fixed at high perf or power saving.

That option doesn't exist in my bios. I've updated it with the update in this link:
I also went to the HP Support in my pc and installed all the updates. I saw that option of fixed graphics in many forums but my bios never had it

Yes, I've updated the drivers and the BIOS given by HP (since I can't update the drivers from AMD site because it says it's not possible). I haven't reinstalled windows because I use the default one that came with the computer. I've seen many forum posts and it seems that the BIOS for this computer doesn't support the fixed method and I must use the dynamic mode. Even in DxDiag doesn't appear the ATI card in the system specifications.
