    This is awesome, I just bought an acer predator helios 300 gaming laptop a few weeks ago and will give this a shot, I've tried to like the windows 10 that came preinstalled but it's such garbage.

    Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to switch the os on this laptop for a while, the wifi chip is intel 9560 and there's only windows 10 drivers available, I'm going to get to work trying to modify the driver soon but if I can't then I'm just going to open up the device and swap the chip with something more compatible.

    I will take a look at the drivers tomorrow and see if they can be ported also.

    Shame on Intel.

    Technically AMD hasn't supported NT 6.2 since Catalyst 14.6 (so since 2014!)... Subsequent driver installs on Windows 8.0 came from the Windows 7 version. That's why I found it odd that out of nowhere in 2016 and onward the drivers produce a BSOD... Oh well.
    Thanks for the feedback :bye1:

    See you have taught me something valuable as well, so thanks for posting.

    It's a shame as a lot of people still prefer 6.2 over 6.3. But that exploit is now a brick wall. I guess you could remove the corresponding update affiliated with patching the exploit, but this would leave your machine vulnerable.

    The driver crashed on install regardless of the update being installed or not. I don't think the BSOD are related to that...

    Which update did you remove? If you remember.

    In this case I tried installing the drivers on vanilla Windows 8.0 (no updates) and it BSOD mid install. I also tried installing with that update and it also BSOD.
    To clarify, I installed the drivers directly through Device Manager pointing to the INF. It BSOD at the point where you hear the Windows hardware changing sounds and the screen flashes to the monitor's resolution.

    Okay. Because I'm interested in the issue, give me a week and I'll get a few AMD cards out and get windows 8 on a test rig.

    Could you let me know your hardware so I can keep it as coherent to your build as possible?

    Thanks, QB.

    Wow, thank you very much!
    I have a R9 380 4GB. You can test with any of the drivers from 16.9.1 up until the most recent (I think now it's up to 18.12.3) and you will find the same BSOD with the same error message. If you need me to test anything on my rig just say it.

    Okay no worries. I found an R7 250 that should be sufficient. I'll update when possible as I've quite a few projects on :)
