Got the Gigabyte RX 5600 XT OC 6G edition yesterday. Cannot get it running however. AMD driver installation freezes the whole system as soon as it starts detecting hardware and system compatibility. I have to force restart the PC. Used DDU to clean all previous drivers, formatted my entire drive and did a fresh install of Windows 10 and the issue persists. 
My System Specifications:

Asus Maximus V Gene LGA1155

Intel Core i5 3570K

16 GB Corsair Vegeance DDR3 ( 4 x 4 GB)

Corsair RM650 PSU

Corsair H100i GTX AIO


Tried on a friends system, same issue, the entire system crashes at this point of driver installation as given in the attached picture.


I am at a loss, is the card DOA? or is the driver the issue, tried the same friends GTX 1660 Ti on my system, works absolutely fine. I have also updated the GPU VBIOS to the latest version with the gigabyte aorus engine, and the issue still persists.
