    I found system restore in control panel, now there is 2 systems restores and 1 system reset, as I understand. I managed to restore system with MS generic driver. Why does MS cosplay Apple with such approach to drivers, no one knows but it is obviously stupid, their drivers are not optimized, I have couple of bugs and artifacts with them and can't change them, what else could cause such problems wit lost devices if system chipset drivers were updated?

    It seems chipset drivers update made some changes in system, now it does not tell there is error 28, but if tells there is no necessary inf line somewhere. That is when I try to update drivers via device manager's driver update button. It downloads driver and then can't install it. Not a solution, but seems like step forward :-)

    Ok it is new sort of bug. 860M is fully recognized, I mean it is presented in video adapters, it is written it has 10.18.13.5582 driver, but no application recognizes it exists, some recognize as unknown accelerator and then crash, another say there is no accelerator at all... sorry there was no step forward people...

    When everything else fails, you can manually force a driver from Device Manager. Right-click on the graphics card, select Update driver, but do not allow Windows to search for it. Instead click on the last option, then click the last option again until you see a Have disk button. Click on this button and browse to the folder where the nVidia driver is extracted. Select the first 860M model from the list and proceed to install the driver, even if you see a message that compatibility cannot be verified. Restart the computer and it should be OK.

    Of cause I tried it all, every sort of installation of every type of driver no matter whose driver it is fails finally, the only difference before updating chipset drivers I had error 28, when after updating I had missed inf line. I had to find another restore point from past week and restore my system. Surprisingly drivers works after that. So we come to conclusion W10 can't normally upgraded and it is not finished system. Their new layer between system core and drivers does not work correctly and drivers can't be updated. W7 rules.

    No wonder they removed build 10586 from Microsoft Tech Bench and replaced it with build 10240. They discovered it is not ready yet...
