    this one has Windows 10 clean install including BIOS hack and NVIDIA drivers update.

    BIOS Hack is not an easy walk. You can brick your laptop with it. If you have difficulties to follow these steps I wouldn't recommend to do it.
    It is possible to use Windows 10 with Andrew08 drivers, I wouldn't recommend that either but some members have managed.

    In case other people are looking for the patched drivers by Andrew08 (Nvidia 263.14 + Intel 2266 signed), as it seems all the download links in this thread are dead, you can get them in a Russian torrent I found.
    Here's the magnet link to it :
    magnet:?xt=urn:btih:EAB10F05E64530A802901BD56DA0170E377BCCBB&tr=http%3A%2F%2Fbt.t-ru.org%2Fann%3Fmagnet

    It contains the following :
    • "BIOS HACK"
    • "HYBRID\VGNZ NVIDIA 26308 - Intel 2020 - by andrew"
    • "HYBRID\VPCZ1 Nvidia 26314 - Intel 2266 signed"

    I installed 263.14 + 2266 from the torrent by following the instructions in Andrew08's post and it worked perfectly, except that I had to install the new driver while in safe mode, if I did it in normal mode it failed.

    Enjoy

    The BIOS hack & Nvidia GT330M are working fine with Windows 10 Creators Update. Brightness keys and HDMI port work fine too.
    What I am not sure of is if I should be able to flip between GPUs on the fly by using the Hybrid Switch - does anyone know ? A reboot is the only way I can switch between GPUs.

    = works as designed. The switching is now (in STATIC setting) solely controlled by the BIOS. To use DYNAMIC switching, you would have to install the old hybrid drivers in Windows instead.
