Thanks for your reply.
Yes, i did try it, even in safe mode, but safe mode didn't change anything.
I have been wondering, if there is something wrong with my windows or if i have some hardware conflicts. Could it be, that win 10 has some incompatibility with my motherboard (its quite old and i think it doesnt have win 10 drivers itself and win is using some default drivers)?
Hmm...i went to check for motherboard drivers and it appears they have released some new win10 drivers a few weeks ago. I'm gonna give them a go and see if that changes anything.
I missed this before, "the driver package does not specify a hardware identifier".
Found this for win10, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff544813(v=vs.85).aspx
http://www.tenforums.com may be the better place for solving that one.
Thanks, i will try my luck there as well.
On the side note - installing new motherboard drivers did not fix my current situation.
I think it helped a little though, because installer finished and showed me the finish screen with notice "driver and software not installed", a second later system hanged so i didn't see the error message.
I've been having a similar situation to this, any attempt to install any release of Crimson drivers results in a complete blackout of my screen, though there is still output as the monitor does report a loss of connection.
I've tried Clean installation using AMD clean Uninstall utility and DDU, even going so far as manual deletion of any reference to AMD drivers via regedit and file explorer.
Each time I try to install the process gets to the point of display driver installation and black screens. The only way to rectify it is to reboot into safe mode and use Clean uninstall or DDU, then reboot. Rebooting on its own shows the windows loading splash, but after that it goes blank.
I'm currently typing with only one monitor connected and no drivers at all.

Have you tried isntalling only driver and from device manager? It has worked for me: the system has crashed but after rebooting the driver is there and working...
Just tried this, for a moment I thought i had a defective card as only 3 of the 4 cores were recognised first time, I went back in in safe mode and now they're all there, I've used msi afterburner to sync the cores. As for the installer and the crimson software.. That was a no go, it doesn't even see the drivers, despite having come from the package folder for the install suite.
In the mean time im going to make a restore point and see if i can manually activate crossfire in the registry.
No point in running a pair of these if only one gets used.
