Mining on the non-AMD graphics is waste of time and power, even if it supports OpenCL technology.
If not, then you can't mining.

Fusion APU's are pretty decent for mining as far as power efficiency goes, but they're not that fast. It's usually a better idea to use the integrated graphics to keep a responsive desktop while dedicated cards are hashing for Bitcoins!

You can't mine with Intel integrated graphics cards (Intel HD Graphics/Intel HD Family) in short. It won't appear in any miner and is basically just your CPU.
AMD integrated graphics cards I haven't tried, but I'm guessing they're different due to how AMD advertises the APUs (only AMD APUs have integrated graphics cards out of all their processors)

TL;DR: You can't mine with your integrated graphics.

I agree with oxydius, can be handy to use the integrated GPU to run the desktop so you can max out any cards you may have and not worry about desktop responsiveness.  That is what I use mine for.

Don't mine on intergrated GPUs you will end up frying the thing
Intergrated GPUs are meant for light use ONLY!! Tongue

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining

tl;dr It's work computers (whether CPUs, GPUs, or FPGAs) do to process/validate Bitcoin transactions. Having many miners (ideally, many miners mining independently and relatively slowly) doing work makes it more difficult for unsavory people to do what's called a "double-spend attack." Mining is currently "subsidized" with Bitcoin rewards "out of thin air" -- that is, every time a block is solved, 50BTC is created and given to the miner who "solved" the block (or given to a pool to be distributed among miners in that pool). In many areas, however, electricity costs can make mining unprofitable. FPGAs, OTOH, are often profitable (perhaps excluding hardware failure costs), but can take a looooong time for it to pay for itself, while GPUs consume much electricity and are thus less likely to be profitable, but in instances where electricity is fairly cheap, pays itself off very quickly, with much higher revenue (and potentially profit). Since mining is currently profitable for many, many mine coins, either as a hobby or for a significant source of income.

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal
