    Oh I see. Then I feel instead of doing the daredevilry installation of AMD driver again I should wait for the stable release of this skippy version or another driver release update from AMD staff.

    I've wasted 5-6 hours due to this laptop freeze issue.

    What is the estimated date of stable release of this skippy version of Windows 10?

    Skippy or RS5 is due to become Fall Creators Update, this fall obviously. Right now it could be deemed "Experimental or Beta".

    Okay, yesterday I installed Radeon driver 18.5.2 minimal edition using first express install settings. Before its installation I checked for windows update first and found that my windows were already up to date. My intel onboard graphicsThe installation of AMD driver froze as the white rectangle filled 3/4th of the portion. I waited for 30 minutes and forced shut down down my laptop. I started in safe mode and ran latest version of DDU (display driver uninstaller) and then started my laptop in normal mode and ran the 18.5.2 installation, with custom installation>AMD display driver checked only. My laptop froze again. Then I again started my laptop in safe mode, ran DDU, clean uninstalled AMD driver.Then I tried the following drivers downloaded from official AMD website one after the another. Adrenalin-Edition-17.12.2-Dec19.exe - faced same freeze issue. Rebooted, ran DDU to cleanly uninstall it. Then I installed radeon-crimson-15.12-win10-64bit.exe. I unchecked Vulkan and installed all of other components. It installed fine. However, unfortunately, after I started illustrator CC 2018 and checked whether it was detecting my AMD graphics card, it showed intel hd graphics instead (see screenshot attached).

    My laptop suddenly changed its brightness all of a sudden while I was taking screenshots, and then I got the message that windows hardware settings had changed and I should reboot. I rebooted. Upon checking in the AMD settings I noticed that now I was running 17.1.1 version of the driver (see screenshot attached).

    I started Illustrator to check but it was still showing intel graphics instead of AMD ones. What should I do so that Adobe Illustrator uses AMD graphics instead of intel onboard ones?
