atikmdag.sys - Driver Install Failed.

#1
So after freshly installing Win 8.1 I was getting allot of crashes, narrowed it down to be atikmdag.sys driver being outdated, so off I went looking for the driver update, found it and tried to install it and got
"Driver Install: the specified driver package was not installed for matching devices" and this is where i'm stuck.

also I installed Win 8.1 on a 55Gb HDD, and my 699Gb HDD, both were fresh installs, same disk, yet the 699HDD is having the problems and I don't get any crashes on the 55gig HDD.

Did you follow all the steps.
It is important that you start with step 1. first Uninstall all amd related drivers and software etc.

Use the uninstall option of the catalyst driver package to remove all AMD components from the computer.

Use the install option of the downloaded Legacy catalyst driver package to do an Express install of the driver.

Proceed with step 4 from the workaround.
