          Windows 8.1 Driver support is ended (and the right thing to do).

           

          Windows 10 & 7 Only drivers from now on..clean install windows 10 with usb.

              I agree with locodicegr, try a clean install of windows 10 via usb drive...windows 10 is not perfect but not as "buggy" as windows 8.

               

              Keep us posted.

                  Again, excuse my bad english.

                  Drivers for Windows 7 NOT WORKING for Radeon Vega 11.

                  If I know, what the drivers for windows 8 wil not be available, I would NEVER buy this processor. I feel like scammed (or cheated) customer.

                  For Linux drivers exist, for Windows  8.1 not? Really? This is bad joke?

                  I were AMD fanboy, but this is history. My next processor wil not be AMD.

                      Sigh..............Again, CLEAN INSTALL WINDOWS 10 with a usb...

                      Its a shame to use a new processor in windows 7....

                        AMD is not the only company to stop supporting Windows 8.1. or Windows 7 as far as hardware or software is concern.

                        For your information only, Your Ryzen 2400g (Raven Ridge) is NOT COMPATIBLE with Windows 7. The only way to get your CPU working correctly is to upgrade to Windows 10.
