I think I had it get stuck once. Solution was to forcibly abort and reboot. If it screws up though then you'll need to do a bit of safe mode tinkering with driver cleaner or whatever it is that the hip kids use these days.

I heard that the latest driver has issues with installation, not sure if that's the one you're trying to install.

Sounds like you need mantle just for the installation.

I installed 14.1 and it screwed up my DVI ports once windows loads.

back to the previous drivers, thankfully I could just hook it up via hdmi and fix it.

Should have known not to touch a beta driver...

Too old to deal with crap like this. Glad I got a GTX 770 instead of a 280x.
