    Windows 8.1 + 10

    Advice, please: Win8.1 w/HD 7850 on Crimson release > Win 10

    Re: Windows 8.1 Pro with AMD HD 7850 on the new Crimson release
    Planned upgrade to Windows 10 Pro [1511] via USB installation

    Should I uninstall the Crimson software + driver prior to running the upgrade to Windows 10 [1511] and then install Crimson for 10?

    Or can I leave the new Crimson installation on 8.1 in place?

    Many thanks in advance!

    You might be able to leave the 8.1 drivers in place during the upgrade, but I suggest uninstalling them first and then installing the Win 10 version after the upgrade.

    It's not as if it was a huge lot of work.
