All versions of Windows since about 2.0 required us to know about drivers. Recently we added "Helper Applications" to the usual driver search. Microsoft and most makers don't cover this very well but as presented it could be quite true if the PC maker/builder left out some item. The AMD angle means I can't offer a direct answer but think about how the Intel RST (helper app) makes all the difference and has caused many a new to the new PC world lose weeks over an incomplete post Windows OS install.
