Ethereum update: Windows Update F***ed up my mining rig. AGAIN.
So Microsoft have done it again…
I have tried my heart out to ensure windows update does not update the whole. Epic fail.
The other day, I get home to see the almighty update busy installing, after it restarted, my 6 card rig using claymore was only giving me 31M/H.
Luckily I had some help from a mate who knows what to do.
He redirected me to AMD’s site and I downloaded the NEW blockchain drivers.
I uninstalled the AMD drivers with Window’s (not so appalling this time) uninstall in Programs and features.
Then I installed the new drivers, waited, and voila – my 4 x RX580 working fine.
My other 2 x RX480’s were not detected so I needed to patch them with ATIKMAG patcher tool.
After letting the patch run, restarting I’m back mining at 168M/H (roughly 28M/H per card)
Just wanted to share with anyone else tearing their hair out over this. Happy Mining.
