    Here you have the zipped html of the folder tree.

    Also, the bios does not have any option regarding the graphic adapters, but Im looking into that, if it's and advanced setting via keyboard shortcut. That would be awesome, disable the ATI and leave the Intel. The guy would be happy.

    From Microsoft Help with upgrading to Windows 10 - Windows Help, under "Can i go back to my old operating system", "Note: If the manufacturer set up your PC to run from a compressed Windows image file (also known as Windows image file boot or WIMBoot) and included the option to restore factory settings, that option will no longer be available after you upgrade to Windows 10."

    If you made your HP recovery discs prior to upgrading to Windows10 you can use those to reinstall the previous operating system.

    Hello, thanks.

    In fact, after the failed upgrade to Windows 10, the recovery partition was there. I just made a copy to an external HDD, and used it to restore later on.

    But the thing seems resolved right now. After updating the BIOS, and seeing that the Windows 8 installed still had the problem, I tried to put W10 again, only to happily find out that the problem was gone: W10 itself installed the graphics drivers by itself (Even after disabling the ATI and set the updates to not overwrite any drivers) and it works, no more code 43, no more BSOD. Even though right now only uses the Intel HD, is more than enough to end this for now. Next time I'll install everything and see what's what, but for now I can give back the laptop and rest. It's been a miserable week.

    Thank you all for your help.
