Hi all,


I've got a Problem installing the AMD Driver Software on Windows 10 Build 1803.

I've upgraded a Friends System last Summer with a SSD and 2 Sticks of RAM.

Since that Upgrade Iive not been able to install a newer AMD Graphics Driver.

The whole System freezes at the Screen "Searching for Drivers", i can't even get to the Selection of the Conponents.

Here is the Hardware in Detail:

CPU: Intel Core I5 3450

Mainboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme 4M

RAM: 4* 4GB Teamgroup DDR3 1600

GPU: PowerColor RX480 Red Devil

SSD: Crucial MX300 525GB

PSU: Be quiet Straight Power 10 400W


In the mean Time I've swapped and tested the Hardware completely.

Here are the Swap Parts:

CPU: Intel Core I7 3770K

Mainboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme 4

RAM: 2* 8GB Gskill DDR3 1600

GPU: PowerColor RX580 Red Devil

SSD: Intenso 120GB

PSU: Enermax Platimax 500W


However the Problem persists.

The only time the Driver Install worked, was when i disconnected the SSD and used an already installed Windows 10 on a Samsung 1TB HDD Drive.

I've reinstalled Windows several times, but the Problem is still there.

SFC and Checkdisk show no errors, and also the Card works with the Adrenalin Driver 18.3.4 installed through the Device Manager.

The Card is otherwise completely stable, my Friend can Game for Hours with no Problem.

Do you have any Tips what else I can try to get the Driver installed, as of now I have no Radeon Software.

Kind Regards Robert
