Ubuntu - can't install AMDGPU-PRO

TL;DR Just bought brand new machine. Can't install  AMDGPU-PRO


Steps Taken:


  1. Install latest Ubuntu from USB drive.  (Version 16.4.1 LTS)
  2. Download latest AMDGPU package directly from AMD  (amdgpu-pro-16.40-348864)
  3. Run amdgpu-pro-install
  4. Reboot


Kernel panic.  Every time.


This is a very generic hardware setup, with a fresh OS install.  Shouldn't the AMDGPU package install without breaking the OS?


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Thank You
