Ok, this is a new one for me. I never had issues with AMD drivers. (Everything below is on the latest version of Windows 11) https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/gpu-kb1603 Basically, I am always running the AMD GPU driver installer with the settings of: factory reset + preserving the settings. I rarely used DDU as of late. The Process I went through: - Cleaning starts, AMD tool deletes the existing driver, restarts, I get BSOD. - System reboots after BSOD, another BSOD. - After multiple restarts, I get into recovery and use system restore. - System boots, running DDU, full cleaning, start to install the driver - error 1603 - Safe mode; DDU; reboot; install the driver - again, error 1603 - Started googling, found and tested several commands and solutions: 1. Framework (all of them) - updated; Visual C++ (all of them) - updated; Windows security - disabled; full permissions granted to the folder 2. run cmd: DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth - everything is fine sfc /scannow - also everything is fine Basically, after several restarts, the issue is still there. Interestingly if I use the AMD cleanup tool manually or allow the driver to use it - the result is BSOD + loop during boot. If I use DDU, everything is fine; however, during installation, error 1603. Again. The best part - is I thought something was with the latest beta driver. I tried the previous driver, which worked fine before- the same issue, error 1603. What magic is this? In the end, I decided to wipe the whole system, tried the latest driver, and it installed just fine. What. The. Hell.? I wonder if it has anything to do with this? Has anyone else had this issue? Literally, I was dumbfounded at the end of this process.
