AMD Adrenalin transforms to AMD Radeon PRO Software

Hello o/

For the last few months I've been trying to install new drivers from 20.9.2 to 20.11.2 and I haven't been able to. Instead of Adrenaline, I always have a blue AMD PRO Softare for entrepreneurs, which I really am not. I tried to reinstall the software several times but it didn't help either. Since I'm a game player, this prevents me from setting up and optimizing using drivers. Is there anyone who could help us? I will be very happy!

I would like to help, but I have no idea what your computer setup is especially Make & Model of your GPU card, CPU, Motherboard and Windows version installed.

Re: AMD Adrenalin transforms to AMD Radeon PRO Software

Here is the latest A4-6210 APU generic AMD Mobile Driver for your laptop: https://www.amd.com/en/support/apu/amd-series-processors/amd-a4-series-apu-for-laptops/a4-6210-radeo...

This  will automatically install both the Integrated and Discrete AMD GPU drivers in your laptop.

Make sure your Windows is fully updated via Windows Update and you have the latest BIOS and CHIPSET drivers installed.

Basically I would first use Lenovo own updating software to update all the drivers in your laptop to the latest version.

First I would install the latest Lenovo AMD Driver to make sure everything works fine before installing AMD generic laptop driver from here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-g-series-laptops/g70-35/down...

Once you update all the Lenovo Drivers now try installing the AMD generic Laptop driver using the following method:

Download and use DDU in Safe Mode (Best Method) or Windows Desktop with the Internet disconnected.

Delete the AMD installation folder at C:\AMD

After DDU finishes and reboots back into Windows Desktop, still with the internet disconnected, install the downloaded FULL AMD Driver package.

If successful, reconnect the internet and again delete C:\AMD Folder.

EDIT: By the way, most of the time that you use AMD Generic Laptop Driver in Device Manager it won't show the exact GPU model that you have installed. It will show either the Series or Family of the GPU card installed.

But it will work fine just won't use some of the customized features in your laptop. It will basically act like a basic Graphic driver.

But the Lenovo's own AMD Driver will show the correct exact AMD GPUs  you have installed in your laptop since they are 100% compatible.

Re: AMD Adrenalin transforms to AMD Radeon PRO Software

I tried to change the installation config but it didn't help. I don't know what to do anymore, I don't have a Radeon PRO card and its software installs it.

Re: AMD Adrenalin transforms to AMD Radeon PRO Software

I don't understand why it is installing Radeon Pro Adrenaline driver for Window's Enterprise.

Are you sure you uninstalled all AMD driver software from your laptop?

After using DDU and boots back to Windows desktop go to  Windows Programs and see if there is a AMD Radeon Pro software. If there is uninstall it.

Then go to Device Manager and make sure under "Display" it is showing MS BASIC DISPLAY ADAPTER and not AMD.

Now install the regular AMD driver and see if it see comes up Radeon Pro.

Make sure to delete C:\AMD Folder each time.

EDIT: this is how the latest Radeon Pro Driver version looks like:

Radeon™ Pro Software for Enterprise

Re: AMD Adrenalin transforms to AMD Radeon PRO Software

I uninstalled everything. I used DDU, installed the software and again I have Radeon Pro.. 😞

I don't know if it can be that but a few months back I upgraded from HDD to SSD so if there is no mistake in it.

Re: AMD Adrenalin transforms to AMD Radeon PRO Software

I did it again, the MS Basic driver was there, the AMD folder was completely missing and as I installed it it was PRO again but there was a ReLive, Streaming and recording function. Then I restarted the PC and it disappeared. I find it a little weird.

Re: AMD Adrenalin transforms to AMD Radeon PRO Software

Radeon Pro has similar or same features as the regular Adrenaline driver. 

I suggest you open a Lenovo Support ticket. They might be able to explain why your laptop installs the Radeon Pro for Windows Enterprise software instead of Adrenaline version for regular Windows.

The only thing I can think off it is some registry corruption.

Try using MS Uninstall/Install Troubleshooting app and see if it cleans out all the AMD registry and left over remnants. You can google it and download it. it is a small free Microsoft program.

Also run in a elevated Command Prompt or Powershell the following command - SFC /scannow.

This will check your Windows installation for corruption or missing files.
