    Description of Problem:
    After installing Windows 10 Pro on a new Seagate drive, everything was ok for a while, I was downloading drivers and moving around the desktop, but then all of a sudden i got the black screen of death , i did a reboot and i was unable to get past the loading screen of the windows logo, the circle thing got stuck. I rebooted till i finally made it into safe mode, there I disabled the intel HD driver on device manager and i was able to log into the desktop in the next normal boot, but then another crash, i tried to install the Crimson drivers and right after i clicked the setup the screen freezes and i cant do anything, i can move the mouse but nothing responds so I'm forced to reboot, i tried installing the AMD drivers on safe mode and it said there was an error finding the device controller.

    Troubleshooting:
    The last thing i tried was to manually install the Crimson drivers on the device manager, by clicking on the default display driver, then update driver and manually choosing the path to the extracted AMD folder, it installed correctly, switched the resolution to 1080 automatically( monitors native res) but nothing else changed, catalyst center didn't install so i tried opening the setup again to find the same issue reported above, system freeze and reboot, then i have to do the same annoying procedure, going into safe mode, disabling intel HD graphics on device manager , i don't know why it keeps activating on its own ( how can i stop that?), and then rebooting into windows again. I even used DDU again to see if i can install the driver afterwards, but same result, should i switch to an specific older version of crimson, or catalyst? I'm out of ideas and i have no clue what is causing all this, Ive also seen many people on the forum having problems with the new drivers. Id appreciate your help guys
    looking forward to your reply

    It worked ! i forgot about the bios settings, i read the manual and found the option to set PCI priority first over intel, and then disabled the intel graphics driver, reboot and voila, i could install the amd driver without hindrance, thanks a lot ! i wonder why this didnt happen on Windows 7, i guess motherboard can get confused sometimes.

    Could be many causes but drivers can change some aspects in BIOS.

    No problemo, in my mobo's Bios i went into the Peripherals tab, down in the graphics options youll find the intel graphics button, you can disable by pressing enter and selecting Disable. On device manager youll find it in display adapters section, there are usually 2 devices there, one of them is intel's, you have to disable it here too, not uninstall, or it it will install again when you reboot
