First boot into Recovery Console

Next bring up network in console

ifconfig eth0 up
dhclient eth0

Next download the driver installer

wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run

Before we install the driver we need to install the dependencies since it won’t do it for you

apt-get install build-essential cdbs fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++6 dkms libqtgui4 wget execstack libelfg0 module-assistant ia32-libs

Make the install executable

chmod +x amd-driver-installer*

Now run the installer
