what do you mean with "installing without catalyst"?
with windows update?
cose i cant do that, i get bsod
Odd, my HD 7970 worked just fine in the Win10 tech previews and official release just fine (only VSR doesn't show up for some reason).
Did you try installing a slightly older version of Catalyst or your drivers only?
1.Download the latest Catalyst directly from AMD.
2.When you execute the latest AMD Catalyst EXE, it will extract all the install files for the driver to your specified location.
3.After it does that cancel the catalyst installer when it pops up, then open device manager.
4. Since you don't have any display drivers installed, your display adapters should be "Microsoft Basic Display", right click and hit Update>Browse> Select the folder catalyst extracted (Default is : C:\AMD\AMD-Catalyst-15.7.1-Win10-64bit )
5. Should click okay and it should install fine without catalyst.
When I try this, Windows comes back at me with
"The best driver software for your device is already installed"
"Windows has determined that the driver software for your deice is up to date."
It won't let me upgrade the driver like that. :-/
