Is it possible to get Windows...

Computer Networking and Wireless Forum - forum.desktopreview.com
Hey guys

My trusty P170EM has been sitting idle for a while, what with life happening at a pretty fast pace, so I wanted to clean it up and maybe run some light gaming on it (no time, alas, for anything more). So I thought I'd install W10.

Thing is, I can't get the AMD driver to install without hanging up the whole system. Digging around the interwebs has turned up a few people with similar issues but the best solution I've been offered so far is "hope and pray", which doesn't seem very promising.

I can install the OS easily and if I hide the graphics cards drivers from Windows update everything seems to run smoothly. As soon as I install the AMD drivers, it all goes to cack. I've tried Clevo's drivers straight from the website, I've tried various versions through AMD, but they all produce the same end result -- a hung system.

Has anyone managed to install W10 on a P170EM with the 7970m card? Did you experience similar issues? How did you get around them?

Thanks!
