hi, first post (i usually can figure out things for myself, but would appreciate advice in this case)


i just swapped an AMD a4 for an intel i7.  i used sysprep (win 7) to keep the old windows install.  things are working ok (a little buggy but slowly fixing it), but i have a question


i use a radeon r9 gpu, the i7 came with onboard realtek HD audio/video....i'm currently running 3 monitors off of the radeon (2x DVI + display port).  what i'd really like is to use the HDMI output on the realtek to output multichannel audio 


i have gotten it so it works!  for about 5-10 seconds, then a blue screen.  i've enabled the onboard / multi monitor in the bios.  the crash is always related to the AMD video driver...if i output the audio through the hdmi but don't turn on the receiver, i don't get an error but as soon as i power on the receiver it obviously makes the PC think i have another monitor attached


is there a way around this that i'm just not getting?  or is this just a pipe dream....

What is the brand/model of the new MB?

I have not used Sysprep, Can it account for 2 different BOIS?
