So before I posted on here I added the driver back on the current .inf file; the problem is that the driver modification triggers an is not signed warning and doesn’t install.
so yes both the type and the class of support for the GPU was removed/redacted from the driver.
If you want to modify the INF and install and unsigned driver then you will need to boot Windows 10 with driver signature enforcement disabled. Simply modifying the INF file of the current drivers isn't going to allow Windows 10 to install the driver like you could in Windows 7. Windows 8 (and higher) operating systems have driver signature enforcement enabled. You can read more about disabling driver signature enforcement here: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/disable-driver-signature-enforcement-windows/
I was able to get the latest driver working without disabling driver signature enforcement. The only downside to this approach is that it won't update the AMD control panel software in the system tray. But I successfully updated a system running Adrenalin 20.4.1 (the last version with Kaby Lake G support baked in). If you wanted to try it, simply run the AMD Radeon Adrenaline 2020 20.5.1 installer and it will extract all of the files into "C:\AMD\Win10-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2020-Edition-20.5.1-June10" then go into Device Manager in Windows 10 and select the AMD Radeon RX Vega M and choose Update Driver, Browse my computer for driver software, Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer, Have Disk, and provide the path "C:\AMD\Win10-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2020-Edition-20.5.1-June10\Packages\Drivers\Display\WT6A_INF". From the list of devices choose the "Radeon RX Vega" and ignore any warnings about the driver not be made for this device. You should now see driver version 27.20.1017.1011. I've run several games including Destiny 2, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, and Fortenite all without an issue. A picture of my system running the 20.5.1 driver is included below.
I'm also running the latest version of the Intel HD Graphics 630 from Intel's web site using a similar process. However once I switched to the 18.104.22.16880 driver from Intel using a similar process of downloading the ZIP version of the Intel HD Graphics 630 and manually selecting the driver in Driver Manager, I was then able to run the regular Intel installer a second time and it ran without issue.
Thanks , it works !!! . I can run the Star was - squadron on my hades canyon, vega M GH graphic card. I updated intel graphic driver first, and installed adrenalin 20.4.1, and then replaced the vega m gh driver with the latest RX Vega driver 20.9.1.
Glad to hear that 20.9.1 continues to work properly. It would be so much simpler if AMD had simply kept supporting Kaby Lake G based systems. I’m not sure I understand why it was arbitrarily removed.
i had some bugs with NUC8i7HVK, (triple monitor only supported 30hz, no HDR, record with AMD software result green screen etc). i contact Intel's support and they asked me to contact AMD support, i contact AMD's support and they told me to connect Intel's support. i understood that both companies doesn't care about us, the consumers.
so i read a lot about the situation and managed to Hack the latest AMD driver installation version 20.9.2 (sept29.20).
attached a link to my google drive, you may download and install.
The full modified software and driver:
Win10-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2020-Edition-20.9.2-Sep29.zip - Google Drive
after successful software installation, you will need to reinstall the driver manually from device manager, choosing "have disk" pointing to: C:\AMD\Win10-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2020-Edition-20.9.2-Sep29\Packages\Drivers\Display\WT6A_INF\ choosing the first "Radeon RX vega" driver, and choose "install anyway"
or you may (alternative for download the full driver from my google driver):
1. download the original driver from AMD website: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-rad-win-20-9-2
2. "try to install it", it will extract the files to C:\AMD\ and will give you an 182 error (It's ok)
3. Download my edited files from here: Win10-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2020-Edition-20.9.2-Sep29 - OnlyModifiedFiles.zip - Google Drive (only 200kb)
4. extract the zip file (including the folder structure), replace the files from the ZIP file with those in C:\AMD at the same folders.
5. run the software installation successfully
6. go to device manager, display adapter, radeon vega
7. double click, update driver, choose "i have disk", > pointing to: C:\AMD\Win10-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2020-Edition-20.9.2-Sep29\Packages\Drivers\Display\WT6A_INF\
8. choose the first "Radeon RX vega"
9. confirm "install anyway"
now you have the latest AMD driver with a WORKING AMD's software.
and send AMD's support team a complaint about how they treat us. (if many people will do that, maybe they will respond as they should)
thanks all for your help concerning Radeon Rx Vega M drivers for Intel NUC.
I think we should join forces to sue Intel rather then finding work around for something which should be officially supported by them.
We all spent lots of money on Intel NUC and now Intel just drops us, this is not normal and people should be aware of that in order to avoid buying Intel expensive PC's.
I do not mean this in any way to infer this is your fault. I have just been burned like this in the past. It is why I never buy niche products as you just can't ever count on the longevity of support. Todays cheap laptop market is just about as bad.
I didn't expect from a company like Intel such an horrible behavior towards its own customers but now I understand why they are loosing ground.
I really hope NVIDIA + ARM will take over most of their customers so that Intel will eventually collapse and finally will be punished after ages of supremacy and arrogance.
could you explain in details your method so that we could use it every time there are new AMD Adrenalin drivers ?
I mean we could modify the Adrenalin bundle as you did so that drivers plus Adrenalin software might work on Intel NUC Radeon Rx M graphic card.
Maybe there is a way to create an automated way (script) in order to modify the Adrenalin software and adapt it to Intel NUC.
I noticed this article from a few days ago saying there is driver update from AMD:
But I'm on the last officially supported version 20.2.2, and there doesn't seem to be any updates available for me. Anyone have any joy with this?
