Budget i9 9900k Motherboards 2023
5 months ago
If you’re planning a PC build for the year, now’s the time to pull the trigger on a new Intel Core X-series processor or Core i9. Not only are they powerful, but they also come with an absolute bounty of features and innovations that puts them on equal footing with Ryzen. Depending on how much you plan on spending, the i9 9900K and 9920X can cost you $480, while the 9900K costs $360.
An AMD thread on /r/overclocking swap detailed an issue with users who had selected either a Ryzen 5 or 7 CPU being unable to install the OS with recent Ryzen APUs. Customers were suggesting that something was disrupting the system and that installation was failing.. The fix was easy enough to figure out, which was to remove the AMD graphics card and then reinstall it after the OS was installed.
The problem was that if you're installing the OS, you may want to install a solid state drive as well. But even with a SSD, some users still ended up with the same error message. It turns out there was a driver issue that was causing the installation issue. AMD has released a driver that corrects the issue and will be rolled out to customers that have Ryzen APUs installed.
I'm installing this right now and shortly will try to put together a brief article to show you the installation process. I will update this article if there are any issues but for now if you're having the same issue I hope the new driver will fix your issue.
Boot into your BIOS and enable secure boot as shown below. You can input your password as normal. Once secure boot is enabled, simply reboot and your system will start installing the new driver I'm assuming it will be a POWER link driver, click Enable button to be taken to the new driver installer and follow the steps. Once installed, go ahead and reboot and now your Windows 8/8.1 with AMD GCN graphics SB family driver should be installed. Thanks for reading.
