AMD Catalyst drivers BSOD installing on Dell Optiplex computers

I've ran into this problem at least a hundred times. The AMD catalyst drivers will BSOD installing on dell computers. We typically buy optiplex machines, so for me it occurs most often there. I found the answer to this problem here. Thanks to TravEdmondOK for this simple fix!

To fix this:
  1. Uninstall any ATI drivers on your system.
  2. Run the CCC installer but I suggest canceling after it extracts the files.
  3. Navigate to: C:\ATI\Support\10-x_vista64_wi n7_64_dd_ccc_enu\Config
  4. EDIT InstallManager.cfg
  5. Change WorkaroundInstall=false to WorkaroundInstall=true
  6. Run Setup.exe and the CCC should install without a problem
