Crossfire and a new windows install
Nov 5, 2009, 3:04 PM
I'm going to be making a crossfire system soon and was curious about the installation process. I did a quick search and didn't find anything relevant, so here I am.
What's the order you install windows and crossfire?
Do you install windows with a single card, then drivers, then second? Or single>windows>second>drivers?
Or perhaps you can install windows with both cards in?
If anyone who's done this before could help me out, it'd be appreciated.

Anyway you prefer....even when you insert in the 2nd card after windows u can clean up the drivers and install new crossfire drivers.....

Like Ridic said, they isn't really a "correct" method.
I would suggest installing both cards at the same time so you save the trouble of adding the second card later and redoing the drivers again.
