How To: Remove Your AMD GPU Drivers (New - 2016) - Page 15

post #141 of 454
Excellent guide and actually fairly easy to follow even for a noob like me!
One thing you might want to add is to remind those who have upgraded Windows from older versions to delete the Windows.old folder using disk cleanup - relatively straightforward too, and will get rid of any pesky legacy files as well as clear a lot of space on your hdd. ;-)

I'm having trouble installing 12.8 Installer package. I forgot to uninstall the previous drivers the first time. But I did follow this guide after, and even used Atiman's Uninstaller and I'm still having the same problem.

Basically not all the components in the package would not install, that includes CCC. Only the display and HDMI audio drivers installed, and this was the same issue I had when I frist forgot to uninstall the previous version of Catalyst. The installation always ends up in a "package install failure!"

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and a HD 7950, and I did download the 64-bit version of the 7/Vista driver.

I'm going to create an extra partition, install a clean Windows 7 and try installing the driver there.

Same problem here, Control centre wouldnt install. in using 7 64-bit aswell with a XFX 6850. both amd's and xfx's drivers had the same problem. i might try the new partition thing aswell.

A reformat will most certainly fix the issue.

Just confirmed the package installed successfully on a clean install of Windows 7 x64. I'm guessing certain drivers I installed are conflicting with this package....
