I was having trouble with a Windows 10 installation. I decided to revert back to Windows 8.1.
I downloaded the proper driver packages from Download Drivers @ AMD
radeon-crimson-16.9.2-sb-sata-ahci-win10-win8.1-win7-64bit-sep29 does not detect any hardware.
It wants to install the "AMD Install Manager" and that's it.
In addition, the autodetect utility from Download Drivers @ AMD does not properly detect my graphics card:
I've been going at this for a few hours now.
The reason I'm rolling back to W8.1 is W10 won't install chipset drivers other than the ones supplied via Windows Update.
If I run a chipset installer on W10, I get the same outcome as above. If I run a graphics driver installer, it correctly installs the GPU. Who knows how long that'll stick, with Windows Update overriding the manually installed drivers.
