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....

This is from Microsoft.com concerning the life cycle of Windows 7 & 8/8.1: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13853/windows-lifecycle-fact-sheet
Windows 8.1 and 7
Prior releases of the Windows operating system are governed by the Fixed Lifecycle Policy. This policy comprises two phases: mainstream support and extended support. See Microsoft Fixed Policy Details for more details.
Client operating systems End of mainstream support End of extended support Windows 8.1 January 9, 2018 January 10, 2023 Windows 7, service pack 1* January 13, 2015 January 14, 2020
* Support for Windows 7 RTM without service packs ended on April 9, 2013. Be sure to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 to continue to receive support and updates.
Prior versions of Windows, including Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, have limited support when running on new processors and chipsets from manufacturers like Intel, AMD, NVidia, and Qualcomm. For more information, see the Microsoft Lifecycle FAQ. A device may not be able to run prior versions of Windows if the device hardware is incompatible, lacks current drivers, or is otherwise outside the original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) support period.
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.
