On Windows 10 1809, installing the 18-10 monthly security update (KB4464330) and then installing the latest Radeon Adrenaline 18.10.1 drivers causes Windows to spew a message about needing to restart from installing a driver for High Definition Audio Bus every time the machine freshly boots or is rebooted.
I’ve been getting this issue since the Windows 10 18-10 security update landed, but only today when the thing had annoyed me enough that I did a reformat/reinstall and found the error starts popping up after I install the Radeon Adrenaline 18.10.1 drivers. Since i have not installed the drivers for other sound devices yet (Realtek Onboard, SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium PCIe, Blackmagic Intensity Pro or Steelseries Siberia headphones), but installed Windows from a USB stick with the 18-10 update slipstreamed in (done to test if the update overwritten a AMD file and caused this error), i have reason to believe that the driver (specifically, the HDMI audio driver) has a bug.
Can someone at AMD please look into this?
It's not Window 10 but AMD Driver 18.10.1 I have had installed Window 10 1803 with AMD Driver 18.7.1 without any problem but as soon I installed 18.10.1 was getting same error need to install high definition audio bus driver!!! AMD Drivers are really sucks this days...……….
Well, the reason I upgraded to 18.10.1 in the first place was because 18.9.3 was crashing very frequently on Windows 10 1809. Maybe it‘s just me, however I don’t recall the error ever appearing before KB4464330 dropped. Hence the suspicion that the error is caused by a bug in the Radeon drivers that lay dormant until said update dropped and changed something that caused the error to start happening.
Microsoft has pulled the update due to many errors. It has not been re-released yet.
Well, no. Unfortunately, I don't know if I want to go back farther than 18.5.1. In any case tho, I don't use the GPU audio anyway (monitor doesn't even have HDMI in, I'm still using DVI), so it's more like the popup is an annoyance than anything system-breaking.
I read somewhere that AMD moved the HD-audio driver location in 18.10 hence this annoying bug once you have installed 18.10
Problem is even after going back to an older Adrenalin driver the problem persists.
Well, live with that until it's fixed...
Yeah, still getting the error even after downgrading the HDMI audio driver to the 18.5.1 one. Frustrating. Wondering if I should upgrade it back.
Edit: I see that 18.10.2 just got released. But the Fixed issues section in the Release Notes does not mention this error being fixed :/
I just installed Windows 10 1809 onto a second machine, and going straight to the 18.10.2 drivers, didn't have that issue. I suspect one of the following cases:
I suppose I should do a reinstall on my Ryzen machine. Again. To see if I can reproduce the problem.
I'm really confused at this point. It's only happening on one of three Windows 10 1809 machines I own. It doesn't happen on my older rig (FX-8320e, RX 570) nor does it happen on my laptop (FX-7600P. R9 M280X). The machine the issue happens on is a Ryzen 7 2700X with RX Vega64 video. Very weird. Also, on my 8320e and R9 M280X, the HDMI audio portion is disabled when there is nothing connected to HDMI. On the Vega 64 HDMI audio is never disabled even if I'm using DVI-D (I use a DVI-D KVM to switch between the FX-8320e and the R7 2700X).
