It sounds like the GPU could be faulty. Could you try it in a different system to see if the same issue occurs?
Unfortunately, I cannot, as my system is the only one in my house with a compatible PSU. I've opened a RMA request through XFX in regards to the fan issues, so we'll see if that fixes my driver issues as well.
Try older drivers (16.3 will be just fine,since Tonga GPU's have problems of black screens and driver crashes with the crimson drivers)
I have had the same issue with win 10 14.939.10 64x Pro
I tested some ways. Crasched sometimes at 16% installation or 33 % by flickering
Shutdown Computer dont help Black Screen and System hang on...
i have found a way for me to solve it, but the Driver dont fixed other issues that i have sience Win 10
Try this, donwlaod Amd Clean UP Utility (its alway in the install Folder)
Execute it, restart.
in System Manager / Hardware Manager show that the Videocard is not installed (yellow) if installed Automaticly try Uninstall with Right klick and uninstall with Software Checkbox
Win 10 must up to date, but Videocard not installed.
Than Downlaod / extrakt Crimson 126.96.36.199 install it normal way with all but Uncheck the "automaticly install drivers"
after installing Restart than Downlaod /extract 188.8.131.52 install it as Upgrade (not uninsatll 184.108.40.206)
make sure that "automatic install drivers" is unchecked (i make that cuz some drivers give me bad fps)
Now no Crash at install or Black Screen at Starting Windows for me.
But have not Full Screen sience Windows 10 build 10240 on Dirt Rally with my VGA monitor on Laptop , CSGO work only in Windowed FS mode with my Vga Monitor but only 1680x1050 (win7 give me Full HD 1920...)
If u have a Running louder Fan or 0.80V power in Desktop (if the Gpu dont turned off in 2D) close the Rapter and Plays Tv App in Windwos Task (need Configured in Catalyst/crimson that Energy is on loweer mode for this app but for Recording it needs Balanced mode i think)
Yeah sounds like faulty graphics card.
