RX 5600 - No boot after GPU driver installation

Problem: Windows does not boot after I install the GPU driver.


OS: Windows 10 Pro x64 v1909.

GPU: Sapphire RX 5600 XT, latest BIOS versions from Sapphire. 

MDB: MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX, latest BIOS from MSI. 


Every time I try to install the driver for the GPU, the PC restarts and never boots into normal mode again. I have tried this installation maybe 20 times each time changing something (driver version, windows version, bios version, monitors, cables, PCI-e slots, and so on...used DDU in every possible way also) 


I am able to boot in Safe Mode and there I can see the Driver of the GPU installed in the Device Manager. If I disable it or uninstall it there, Windows boots normally again.


AMD drivers that I have tried: 20.1.3; 20.1.4; 20.2.2 (manually installation in Device manager or automatic in Adrenalin Software)

Windows Versions Tested: Windows 10 Pro x64 and Windows 10 LTSC x64.

Tried this also without a monitor attached via TeamViewer.
