Of the OS or the Graphics Driver?
Because I've already removed it and tried again. Same result.

I think I need to justify why the clean install is the only option (not the final, but the first) here.

This BSOD is occurring due to a driver failure. The driver is intel HD graphics driver. The device that is driven by the driver is Intel HD graphics 3000. The exactly matching latest driver is not being installed there saying the hardware is not compatible.

That may have two possible alternative interpretations. First, there is some manufacturer's settings that is blocking driver install, they will accept some custom modded drivers only. Second, the graphics hardware is failing.

In either case, a clean install is needed. If the manufacturer's settings are created by the software environment, then a clean install will break it and will make the system capable for a proper driver update. If the hardware is failing, then the device will not take any least driver even via the windows update after the clean reinstall. And that is why the clean install is needed.

It may be another case, the driver is not failing, and still the latest drivers are not being installed. Then we have to decide that Lenovo has applied some BIOS settings which is resisting a driver update when the driver is not a modded one. In that case we need to go in the BIOS and apply our own settings as if a normal computer. But that is the next step.

hope you will understand me.
