Hi.  I'm trying to beef up performance for Bioshock Infinite.  I have a bootcamped Mac on Windows 7, details below.  Bootcamped Macs are notorious for not working with non-Apple released AMD drivers, and those drivers are very old.  

But sometimes it is the case that (for some reason) beta AMD drivers do work with Bootcamped Macs, as long as they are manually installed and prevented from updating.

Has anyone tried the latest beta, or does anyone know whether it will work on a Bootcamped Mac?

System Info (Sorry for things I don't know, the Device Manager isn't very specific):

Graphics Card
-Radeon 6600M and 6700M Series (not sure exactly which)

AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
- 12.6 beta (the latest I could get to work with Bootcamp so far)

Operating System
- 64 bit Windows 7

Issue Details
- when attempting to install latest AMD drivers on Bootcamped Mac, will simply say "errors in installation," and sometimes requires a manual reinstall of a stable beta for best performance.

Motherboard or System Make & Model
- iMac, 

CPU Details
- Intel Core i5-2400S (2.50 GHz)

System Memory Type & Amount
