Did a new install of Win8 Pro WMC 64bit.
(i7-3770K, Sapphire Vapor-X 7970 GHz Ed., 32GB DDR3-2133 G.Skill Ram, 240GB Kingston Hyper-X SSD)
After fresh setup, I installed Catalyst 13.2b7 some days ago.
Had some issues with transparency textures in Everquest2 compared to default Win8 drivers (silly, these were without issues), but that is another topic.
Now new 13.3b3 drivers came out, so I decided to uninstall old 13.2b7 drivers.
While deinstall (buildin express uninstall) I got a BSOD, all tools were deinstalled exept 13.2b7 display drivers and AMD HDMI audio drivers.
But new start of deinstaller shows, there are no parts to deinstall left.
So I tried to install Catalyst 13.3b3.
All was installed fine except display drivers and HDMI audio drivers.
While trying to install them I again got an BSOD (Win8 bad smilie).
So I tried standalone uninstaller from AMD.
That tool deinstalled AMD drivers, I now have again initial Win8 buildin drivers from Microsoft (these without transparency issues).
And as a surprise I have no longer access to powemanagement settings in Win8, seems uninstaller deinstalls more than AMD files and settings. Again, this is another topic.
But even if it looks like a fresh install, I can't install anymore a Catalyst driver. When trying the installer all is installed except display drivers and HDMI audio drivers.
So maybe I only have the choise to reinstall Win8 again.
But because it was a fresh install,
there ARE issues with AMD installer/deinstaller.
I hope AMD will fix them, I don't want to reinstall Win8 for each AMD Catalyst driver update.
