Do the beta Vulkan drivers support the AMD Radeon HD 7970M

Do the beta Vulkan drivers support the AMD Radeon HD 7970M (from what I gather they do). And if they do does anyone have any idea why they won't install properly? I end up with a black screen as if the graphics drivers haven't fully installed, this persists after the install has finished and restarted the laptop (my laptop is an MSI GX60). So that whenever I start the laptop it hits the windows load screen then goes black afterwards.

This isn't really a problem as I can just system restore, but I would like to play around with the Vulkan API as a developer.

Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read and answer this.

There shouldn't be any problems. Try clean installing again using DDU.

Thanks very much for the advice, unfortunately that didn't work. It does get rid of the black screen on start-up however I end up with an error code 43 on the AMD Radeon HD 7970M driver and it defaults to the windows base driver. This might be because when I install it I no longer have my Integrated GPU driver which is an AMD Raedon HD 7660G.

On top of the above I tried a clean windows 8.1 install on a partition and it didn't like it there either unfortunately!  If you've got any more advice or ideas you can send my way I'd appreciate it.

Wow, sorry been busy so part time. Broke my own rule and left someone hanging. at least you know if you ever check this post...

AMD Vulkan drivers have been updated a few time, its like your running the latest Crimson so will be able to run the API. If its working mark a post as the answer.

If your still having problems with Vulkan even with the latest Crimson let me know.
