Earlier today AMD finally put out a chipset driver that resolves a bug that has plagued the last two releases of their chipset drivers. Earlier last week AMD_Robert posted a message on the AMD reddit page stating that this patch was on the way. Which was a welcomed message and a trend I hope continues long after their recent driver issues.
- Removed deprecated device IDs from the IOV driver
- Removed deprecated device IDs from the USB 3.0 driver
- General system stability improvements
- Installer may hang during installation progress
- Installer may abort with “Error 1720” code
- Installation will not install on a non C:\ location
- Resolved screen rotation bug with select AMD mobile processors
- Rare system halt on 7th Gen AMD A-Series APUs
- Windows Installer pop up message may appear during install
- Moving installer window during install process may cause installer window to flicker/move around the screen
- Cannot open installation log file after completion
- Installer may not update a sub-package to the latest version
- Workaround: Manually uninstall any prior sub-package, reboot, then re-install the full Chipset package

Installation of Software
Note: Close all opened applications before attempting the install process.
- Unzip and extract the deliverable folder ‘AMD_Software_<Version>.zip’ containing:
- Release Notes
- Installation Executable
- Double click and invoke the installation executable named ‘AMD_Chipset_Software.exe’.
- Provide administrative privilege explicitly if prompted for, by clicking ‘YES’ in the UAC prompt.
- By default, the executable extracts files under “C:\AMD\Chipset_Driver_Installer \AMD_Chipset_Drivers” and “C:\AMD\Chipset_Driver_Installer \ChipsetDriversExtract” to continue with installation.
- Any driver specific file changes can be made under ” C:\AMD\Chipset_Driver_Installer \AMD_Chipset_Drivers\IODriver \<DriverName>”
- Re-run the executable and continue with above mentioned steps to select any more drivers to de deployed on the system.
Uninstallation of Software:
- Once installation completes successfully, uninstallation can be done by clicking ‘Uninstall’ after selecting on ‘AMD Chipset Drivers’ entry in control panel which removes all uninstall-able drivers deployed via ‘AMD_Chipset_Software.exe’ from the system.
Note: To give better user experience, AMD UART, AMD GPIO & AMD I2C Drivers were made as non-uninstall-able drivers from ‘AMD Chipset Drivers’ entry in control panel, even if deployed on the system
