Notes

Tested by Debian 8.1 Jessie (distr with proprietary drivers). Do NOT use nvidia-config (because of 2 videocards), use Optimus system install manual https://wiki.debian.org/Bumblebee.
During installation I was asked about special proprietary driver, but I ignored it, and after installation wifi worked out of the box.
