    You are skipping that step and you can't

    hey
    no i didn't skip that step all preparation steps were good. Im thinking that i maybe messed up on the profile inspector part and will try that again, however i am not getting all the menus described in the guide

    Follow my steps, you don't need the inspector part

    Just need to disable driver signatures, copy the folders of modified files over after the driver extraction completes, then continue the install after copying it

    You just need the files from the site, follow my steps more

    Basically make sure you are replacing the infs that arlready exist in the driver


    And if you don't reboot into disable driver signature checking mode it won't let you install the driver

    @ColaMonster Tried again today and finally made it work :)
    The result is however not very impressive as i seem to be getting the same performance from my 1060 as i did my dual 7970.
    Also i cant seem to be able to use the 1060 for display so my external 144hz monitor is stuck as 110 :/
