I'm trying to install the latest drivers for my graphics adapter. I have a 64 bit PC running Windows 7 Pro, service pack 1. The adapter type that I have is listed as "ATI FireGL V7200 (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM)"
I don't understand the relationship between AMD and ATI, but I believe my graphics adapter was made by ATI Technologies Inc.
In any case, I go to the Driver and Download Center>Manually Select Your Driver, and enter the following:
Step 1: Type of System: Workstation Graphics
Step 2: Product Family: FireGL Series
Step 3: Select your product: FireGL V7200
Step 4: Operating System: Windows 7 - 64 Bit
Step 5: Display Results
There is one driver listed in the results "AMD Catalyst Display Driver", 88 MB, release date 4/8/2009
I click the Download button, and save "FirePro_8.583_Vista64_77160.exe"
I run the executable. Everything seems to be going well. Express install (not custom).
At the end of the process, I get an error message, and view the log for details. In the "Catalyst Install Manager Installation Report", under "Existing Packages">"ATI Display Driver", the Final Status is listed as "Fail", and when I click this link, I see the error message "Driver Install: the driver package does not specify a hardware identifier".
Is this an issue that I should be concerned about? If so, what should I do?
Any help would be much appreciated.
