Today i tried to install the new Catalyst 13.1 on Windows 8 64-bit for my HD6950 2GB, but the installation failed. After that i uninstalled the previous Catalyst 12.10 driver, removed the remaining directories and cleaned up my registry. I tried to install again and it failed again. Looking at the installation report i found this:
HDMI Audio Driver Fail
Driver Install: the driver package does not specify a hardware identifier
After disabling the HDMI Audio driver installation during the setup the installation went well. I don't use the HDMI Audio function so it doesn't really matter to me, but i'm sure there are people out there who do. So i thought i'd share this with you. Hopefully they will fix this problem.
