Originally, this computer started out as having Windows 7, with R9 270X's Crossfire.
Drivers were no issue upgrading to 10, and worked fine, even as I updated. I have had to completely reinstall 10 recently, and I cannot get the driver to install whatsoever. Everything else--AMD Crimson, HDMI Audio Driver, Application Profiles--all install just fine.
However, when it comes time to install the driver, it hangs and then will bluescreen with a SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION error involving the driver and reboot. Then it just constantly bluescreens again, and again, and again until it finally goes into repair mode. A clean install solves nothing.
What I have tried:
- System Restores and reinstall
- Running DDU in Safe Mode and re-trying
- Disabling the second card
- Using Device Manager
- Disabling automatic driver updates through Windows
- Manually installing drivers with Device Manager
- Using AMD's Autodetect
Every. Single. Time. Same exact thing. I have read countless places, and the only thing I have not done is sfc in command prompt. This was not an issue until I had to clean install Windows 10. I've even tried using an older driver, and it behaves in the same fashion. I should also add, it will say "AMD R9 200 Series" under display adapter, with an error code 43, no matter what I attempt to do.
This was not an issue until fresh install of Windows 10 was done. Do I just need to move on to another, newer card? I am at my wit's end as to what to do. If it is not actually supported, AMD should really consider re-evaluate listing it as supported hardware with Windows 10 drivers...
