Your laptop does not meet the minimum requirements for Win10. Better results with the OS the laptop was designed for.

Laptops with switchable AMD/Intel graphics Windows 10 support

so u think with a windows 7 ultimate, i can switch rainbow six on my AMD gpu?


You should have full use of your laptop, including the switchable graphics.

Remember, don't even think about installing AMD drivers until the OS is fully updated:

** Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 must be fully updated before attempting to install any AMD driver. All 'critical', 'recommended', and 'optional' (no language packs,etc) updates as well as any Service Packs (SP) must be installed before any attempt to install graphics drivers. If you do not get this message .... keep installing until you do:

ok i will install win7 with all updates and will say the result. i hope this fix it, but if it not work I will be a bit angry - installing a win takes long time!!!


LoL, Try to make a System Backup with Windows 10 installed to a separate Hard drive. Then install Windows 7. If by any chance it doesn't work, when you use System Backup, delete the partitions on the C drive to eliminate the installed Windows 7 and restore your Backup Image to the C drive.

If you are having problems, Reinstall the basic  Windows 10 and then use the System Image to restore back again to the original Windows 10 you had before.

If you have something else like Acronis or Easeus or other backup software, you can use those programs to restore a System backup made by them.

It is a lot easier than trying to reinstall huge amount of Legacy and Non-legacy programs originally installed in Windows 10 and to configure Windows 10 to the way you had before.
