I was trying to update drivers and it kept freezing. Figured I was due for a system refresh so I did a clean windows install, I now cannot get ANY drivers to install.
I'm using a Radeon VII. In every instance, the installer progress bar either gets about 7/8ths of the way across in the "detecting hardware" screen, or gets to the "checking for new drivers" screen (depending on the version) and then the entire system freezes.
THINGS I HAVE TRIED
-Installing in safe mode
-running DDU, then installing
-Running windows update, then installing
-doing ANOTHER clean install with no internet connection (so no windows update, no auto-installed drivers), -transferring the drivers to the PC via USB, and then installing
-Swapping the Radeon VII for a Vega 56 and then installing
-Installing the version 19 WHQL drivers from either 12/19 or 10/19 instead
-Installing the newest drivers
-Installing the 3/5 WHQL drivers
-Installing the Radeon Pro enterprise drivers
