Radeon drivers don't want to install on Windows Server

Jump to solution

Again, AMD graphics drivers specially exclude Server variants of Windows. Installer says "Error 182 – AMD Installer Cannot Properly Identify the AMD Graphics Hardware", direct installation from .inf doesn't work (.inf files are written as "NTamd64.6.1.1" instead of generic "NTamd64.6.1").

This appeared first with first Crimson drivers, then disappeared, then appeared again near half a year back.

Why do you specially exclude Servers? It's not like you provide separate drivers for servers or they require any extra support (editing the .inf files and manual installation does the trick).

Is this intentional or oversight?

PS: Hardware Radeon R9 390, OS Windows Server 2008R2.

Hi set ,

Microsoft does not certify consumer level graphics card for use with Windows Server. After a quick search on the R9 390 page, that is why it is not listed as a supported OS under the drivers page. For official support and certification by Microsoft, it would require that you use a graphics card from our professional series.
