Guys... Yesterday I changes my mobo from maximus v gene to formula. Here is what happened and whats the problem -
1. When I installed Windows 8, PC hangs at the first startup iteslf. There is no display on monitor and keyboard+mouse are freezed. I tried to get into Safe Mode but it can not saying "installation can not continue into safe mode".
2. After much tries found out that my gfx cards (2 x HD7950) might have been the causes so installed windows 8 once again using on-board gfx only. Now windows got installed properly but still I'm unable to get into it if I plug in my gfx cards. I can go into safe mode though.
3. I gave up and installed Windows 7. It got installed perfectly but the issue is with onboard gfx now .... here is the screenshot of the devie manager. I installed latest AMD drivers and played some games as well. But shall I be worried ? As whenever I try to install Intel HD drivers my machine hangs. Is the mobo faluty or what is causing this issue with HD7950 drivers & Intel drivers? Please help.
Another thing just happened while installing Bundled AI Suite with the DVD, I got BSOD stating "BAD_POOL_HEADER", then machine restarted booted up fine.
Tried this. Uninstalled Intel & AMD drivers with driver fusion in safe mode. Removed both GFX and booted with onboard GFX. Installed the Intel HD Drivers. It worked fine
Then I plugged in a single GPU and instaled AMD drivers and bang.... after reboot machine getting locked again.
So i went into safe mode removed and removed Intel HD & AMD drivers both once again and rebooted with display connected to gfx card. It booted and now I could install AMD drivers but for Intel HD grapphics it shows like this below screen. If i try to install the drivers for it the machine hangs again.
And yes I tried with both 12.10 and 12.11 drivers.
So the summary is
1. I'm unable to complete Windows 8 installation due to this driver conflict
2. If I use Windows 7, then I'm unable to install Intel HD4000 drivers in anyway.
