1. Repair System Registry and Files

Run the Windows Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) and System File Checker (SFC) tools as Administrator. The DISM and SFC tools scan the integrity of the Windows image and all protected system files replaces corrupted, damaged and incorrect versions. 

Done both no errors on my system, tried to reinstall the newest drivers and still got 1603

2.  Update Windows

The AMD Installer requires Windows to be fully updated.  Please run Windows Update and apply all available critical and important updates.

Tried this ive got 4 updates pending installation but when i try ot install them, windows unable to configure them and restores to how my pc is now,

3.  Resolve driver and software conflicts

Driver cleaning software, such as the AMD Clean Uninstall Utility or Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU), can completely remove any existing or damaged driver files and registry entries, thereby allowing a successful installation of the latest AMD driver software package.
