i try several times to install new radeon pro software adrenali on a vega frontier edition with the option driver.
i cannot switch from driver
DO you have one or two Vega FE cards installed?
i have 2
i saw that not supported with multi gpu
***Before starting make sure you have the year end 17.12.1 driver downloaded from here (The second driver option, not the 17.Q4 driver) Radeon Pro Software and make sure you have Display Driver uninstaller downloaded and save to your desktop. You can grab the latest from here Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) V220.127.116.11 Released. - Wagnardsoft Forum ***
Step 1: Boot WIndows 10 into safe mode and run the DDU utility and completely clean your system of all AMD drivers (Choose Clean and shutdown) *If you have an AMD CPU in addition to you VegaFE cards, DDU will clean your computer of the CPU drivers...make sure you have the latest AMD chipset driver if this is the case, if not you can ignore this step.*
Step 2: After your machine is turned off, open your case and take out the second AMD Vega FE card and leave it off to the side and turn your computer back on.
Step 3: Once you power your machine back on and you are logged in you can install the 17.12.1 Pro driver that I provided in the link earlier in this post and install it with the CUSTOM option. You will be prompted to install a gaming driver later on, choose yes and let the pro driver install. It may or may not ask for a reboot...reboot it.
Step 4: After your reboot launch the AMD Radeon Settings utility. The blue pro driver version will come up. Look in the lower left hand corner of the settings and you should see driver options. CLick it and choose "switch driver mode" It will ask to install the gaming version of the 17.12.1 driver. Choose "Install and switch mode" Your screen will go blank during this time. Allow the driver to install and when it is finished, the gaming driver will be installed. Make sure you shutdown your machine after this.
Step 5: Once your machine is powered down go ahead and put your second card back into your machine and power it back on. Login to your account and bring up the radeon settings again. It will be back to the pro driver...not to worry. Go into the driver options in the lower left hand corner and switch the driver mode from the pro version to the gaming version. This will take 5-10 mins. It will look like your machine is hung....just leave it alone. Your screen will flicker 8-10 times...this is normal. Just let it do its thing, go and grab a cup of coffee.Once the machine flickers and is finished the radeon settings will come back up in gaming mode.
Step 6: In radeon settings, click on the gaming tab and global settings. Look for Crossfire to be enabled at this point. Try your games in crossfire that you want to play. You can monitor if your second card is being utilized or not with a utility such as GPUZ ot MSI afterburner. It has been hit or miss with Crossfire for me. Firestrike works in crossfire but Battlefield 1 and 4 will not work in Crossfire. AMD still has some work to do.
It is important that you follow these steps to the letter, if you don't Crossfire won't work.
Good luck and let me know how it goes.
Thanks a lot
tomorrow ill do these steps.
I will inform you with results
I have tryed your guide to install the dual diver but i am struggling at step 4. I am when I try to Switch, I am not ask to install the Driver, I only have the option too switch.So I proceed and everything seems ok, but then i get the message there is no device driver installed and the standard windows driver will be uses.
I hope you know what to do to solve this Problem. What about the switch on the card itself? What possition is the right one?
Thanks for you Reply
We're you asked at step 3 for the option to I stall the gaming driver after you chose custom?
I have solve the problem with the installation of the driver. I have to do a complete new install of my windows.... But now Its ok.
But I have still a strange and annoying issue. I have a Samsung C49HG90 49" Monitor and I have plugged two Display Ports from the Vega into the Monitor to use the picture by picture feature while i am working. This will be ok with the pro driver, but when i am switch over to the gaming driver my windows hangs up (no bluescreen, just a black one and a reboot). After rebooting the screen freeze and the same reboot happens again.
If I unplug one of the connection cables everything run smooth. Before the Vega Frontier i have had an Asus GTX 1060 graphic adapter with the same monitor setup without any issues.
What do you guys think? Will this be a driver problem and be solved in the future? Who can be asked about this. I don't know what to do at this moment
Thanks a lot for any help
P.S.: Do you know about the switch on the card itself? I cant find any proper information about it while asking google :/
Thanks but nothing to do.
Your steps works. I have installed the software but there’s some conflict with windows because display blinking and a message appears that amd drivers wasn’t loaded properly and windows based display driver loaded.

Re: unable to install radeon pro software on vega frontier with "driver option"
in Drivers & Software
Unable to us pc.
Display always blinking
Once switch driver from professional to gaming cannot come back again to professional driver.
Because I prefer pro driver how can I use 2 Vega in crossfire?
