HD6990 Eyefinity Help, Only Duplicating

I have 3 LG 22" Monitors.
The first one is hooked up directly to the Dvi port on the card.
The second monitor is hooked up via an AMD VALIDATED Active Minidp to Dvi Convertor.
The third monitor is hooked up Via a "PPA Int'l Passive Minidp to Dvi Convertor"

The issue is, when it asks me if I am seeing the correct setup (which it shows). I click "Yes" then asks about bezel management which I have tried yes and no. After these 2 steps, guides I have read say that it should then convert to 1 functional desktop. In my case, it either BSODs or Blinks for a second then goes right back to 3 duplicated screens.

I have tried setting it up with 2 monitors, which also didnt work.
Tried ^ that with both minidp adaptors.

Losing faith, probably going to call AMD in the morning and give them a piece of my mind if they cant help me with my issue. If someone could help me out, you would be preventing me from ruining someones Friday @ AMD, and making me happy in the long run. PLEASE and THANK YOU!

I was under the impression all miniport adapters needed to be active.

If that were the case then Dvi + Active minidp would give me 2 screen eyefinity, but I still only get 2 duplicate screens. Going to take the passive adaptor back to frys and attempt to get my $$$ back and see if the have an active one in stock. (3 days ago they did not)

Almost a year later and still having issues, still can't set up a working Eyefinity. Same set up. Never did call AMD, maybe I will do that later this week.
