I upgraded the wireless card on my Lenovo S430 (Germany, no card blocking), i5-3210M running Windows 10 x64. It used to have an old Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230.
Everything is working just fine... Except Bluetooth. For whatever reason, it always ends with "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)" or "This device cannot start. (Code 10)".
Tried enabling, disabling, restarting, uninstalling drivers, updating drivers, reinstalling drivers. I even tried tapping the pins mentioned on https://youtu.be/Mw5HLg2rGuk https://youtu.be/Mw5HLg2rGuk
Anyone has any good idea on how to fix this?

I understand that Intel doesn't support... Anything. Or Lenovo. "Just go and buy a new whole computer", of course.
But regarding the regulation, it doesn't apply to Germany.
So... I'll look into these links see if I can find some useful information. Thanks.
