Any proper Windows 8 Enterprise drivers for the Radeon 5850?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I installed the Windows 8 Enterprise edition, and I have to say, I am loving it. The metro UI is decent; I was able to get used to the whole setup in a day. Everything is lightning fast compared to Win 7, btw.

Anyway, I noticed that Catalyst drivers for the Win 8 Release Preview won't install properly, and neither will any other versions of Catalyst. Any OpenGL applications (Half-Life, Worms Armageddon, etc.) will not work at all, which sucks for me, because they are the games I have been playing the most recently.

My question is; is there any way to install drivers properly for my card on Windows 8 Enterprise? Are there hacked drivers for Windows 8 Enterprise?

Thank-you for reading my post.

I'm having the exact same problem. Flash videos with Hardware acceleration look green. OpenGL doesn't work. a LOT of games crash.
I love Windows 8 but without support (especially GPU support) it's practically useless. So Please : Is there a release working with the RTM version of Windows 8 ? Official or not ? If not, when will AMD release a proper driver for Windows 8 ? Thank you...
