    Windows 8


    I'm trying to install Windows 8 on my PC, but when I get to the "Preparing Devices" part I get this error:


    I know that atikmdag.sys is an ATI video card driver (I have a Radeon HD 4600)

    Does anyone know why Win8 doesn't like this driver or how to fix it?

    Try to install with the windows base drivers, then you can try to install a recent ATi version
