Unable to install Adrenalin 2020 20.7.1 at all on Windows 10 64bit 19.09 latest update.
I am running DDU Version 126.96.36.199.
(1). I am unable to install Adrenalin 2020 20.7.1 at all on Windows 10 64bit 19.09 latest update.
(2). A DDU setting is affecting Adrenalin Install behaviour I see.
I run DDU in Windows 10 safe mode to remove all traces of AMD or Nvidia drivers.
I have tried running Factory Reset install Option.
In one setting (DDU setting A) the Adrenalin installers black screen before install completes.
The PC then freezes, it sounds like USB bus / keyboard is getting disconnected.
I end up having to Soft Reset the PC.
I am unable to log into Windows again on reboot into Windows normal mode.
I have to perform 3 soft resets to boot into safe mode, then I can log in to Windows in safe mode and run DDU to remove failed AMD Driver install.
DDU setting A
(Note: PC connected to Internet via Ethernet Cable in first attempt but also tested completely disconnected from Internet ).
With another DDU setting ( (DDU setting B) ) the install completes then causes very sluggish mouse behaviour on desktop and crashes the PC with an atikmdag BSOD.
DDU setting B
(Note: PC completely disconnected from internet during entire install attempt).
(3). I have been able to install this, after much effort - Adrenalin 19.12.1 GUI/UI + 20.7.1 driver.

Starting point information:
Windows is up to date.
Windows 10 Pro Version 19.09 (OS Build 18363.900).
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scan Health.
All report clean result with no problems.
The PC is run at stock CPU Base clock and below stock DRAM speeds:
The CPU core is running at fixed 3.7GHz and the RAM is running at 2133MHz.
Clicking on this:
Now opens to here:
I downloaded and installed the new AMD Bug Reporting Tool.
The AMD Reporting tool is reporting that I have Adrenalin 19.12.1 driver installed and will only let me report a BUG for 19.12.1.
I actually have Adrenalin 19.12.1 GUI/UI and 20.7.1 driver installed.
I am unable to install 20.7.1 driver - that is what I am trying to report.
Congratulations AMD, I am unable to file a report on a driver that will not install.
For what it is worth - the bug report will probably get ignored because it is submitted as Adrenalin 2019 19.12.1 and not 20.7.1.
In addition my PC is currently runnig at 4.3GHz and 3200MHz so they will probably not believe me that I set CPU speed to 3.7GHz and Ram to 2133MHz.
I included a link to this thread.
I should now file a Bug report on the AMD Bug reporting tool inability to detect the correct installed driver version or provide user option to override it.
Looking at the release notes:
I think that this driver is still suppposed to install on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit 19.09.
Did anyone in AMD test it?
Or was the installer only tested on Windows 10 Version 2004?
I am unable to install that version yet:
