    Are you asking what Engineering Sample means? Probably AMD's designation
    for pre-beta software.

    If you don't want it to install, change your Windows Update options to
    Download but don't install.

    i did. Oh and i did find out what update originally messed up my computer. Look above where i posted about the SATA driver. In order to run any high end application i need to update the driver.  Crashed the computer when i closed java...or the update failed

  • I'd to like to second seeing this behavior of the AMD Engineering sample drivers for my Radeon HD6850 in windows update. It shows up after already installing it. Seems like it doesn't recognize it just got installed, so i just hide the update. New versions will show up so that's good.
