    Hi all,

    I'm having a very frustrating problem when trying to upgrade my Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro. I reach the point where the setup checks for "compatibility", only to receive an error message:

    "An error prevented a required compliance check from completing. Cancel the installation and try upgrading again.

    Installing Windows will affect these devices or applications:

    ATI CATALYST Install Manager * "

    This is what I did (in order) to try to remove it completely:
    - Control Panel > Programs and Features > Uninstall ATI Catalyst Install Manager
    - Ran the AMD Uninstall Utility
    - Ran Driver Sweeper
    - Ran CCleaner
    - Restarted PC, tested, still got the same message...
    - Looked for any folders with "AMD" or "ATI" and deleted them
    - Deleted registry key folders with "AMD" or "ATI"
    - Ran AMD Uninstall Utility
    - Restarted PC, tested, still got the same message...
    - Reinstalled AMD Catalyst Drivers/Install Manager
    - Re-uninstalled it from the Control Panel, went through first 4 steps again

    In my current state, the AMD Catalyst Install Manager has been removed (or so I think), but the Windows 8 setup still stops me saying that I must uninstall it to move on. I have also tried to use Revo Uninstaller, but the Catalyst Install Manager didn't even show up in the list of installed programs to begin with :/

    Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
    Chris

    would be better to simply create a new partition on your hard drive if you only have one hd and install windows 8 to that so you can still keep windows 7 and go back to windows 7.

    Try removing the device in Device Manager.

    And check manually for any other left overs, regedit, etc.
