Unable to install Adrenalin 2020 20.7.1 at all on Windows 10 64bit 19.09 latest update.

 

I am running DDU Version 18.0.2.6.

 

(1). I am unable to install Adrenalin 2020 20.7.1 at all on Windows 10 64bit 19.09 latest update.
 
(2). A DDU setting is affecting Adrenalin Install behaviour I see.

 

I run DDU in Windows 10 safe mode to remove all traces of AMD or Nvidia drivers.
I have tried running Factory Reset install Option.

 

In one setting (DDU setting A) the Adrenalin installers black screen before install completes.
The PC then freezes, it sounds like USB bus / keyboard is getting disconnected.
I end up having to Soft Reset the PC.
I am unable to log into Windows again on reboot into Windows normal mode.
I have to perform 3 soft resets to boot into safe mode, then I can log in to Windows in safe mode and run DDU to remove failed AMD Driver install.

 

DDU setting A
===========
(Note: PC connected to Internet via Ethernet Cable in first attempt but also tested completely disconnected from Internet ).

 

 

 

 

With another DDU setting ( (DDU setting B)  ) the install completes then causes very sluggish mouse behaviour on desktop and crashes the PC with an atikmdag BSOD.

 

DDU setting B

===========

(Note: PC completely disconnected from internet during entire install attempt).

 

 

 

 

(3). I have been able to install this, after much effort - Adrenalin 19.12.1 GUI/UI + 20.7.1 driver.
