I'd try editing the .inf file in the FirePro drivers (CH_71430.inf ?) and adding the device ID to use the V8700 settings;

Code:
"ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series " = ati2mtag_R7XGL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9442
I found my 4850's device id (dev_9442) by searching through the CH_72276.inf from the Catalyst 8.12 drivers and copying the whole line, then adding the GL part to point it to the right drivers.

Insert it in to CH_71430.inf file as the last line in the device identifier section, like this:

Code:
"ATI FirePro V3700 (FireGL)" = ati2mtag_RV620GL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_95CC
"ATI FirePro V3750 (FireGL)" = ati2mtag_R7XGL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_949F
"ATI FirePro V5700 (FireGL)" = ati2mtag_R7XGL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_949E
"ATI FirePro V7750 (FireGL)" = ati2mtag_R7XGL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_949C
"ATI FirePro V8700 (FireGL)" = ati2mtag_R7XGL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9456
"ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series " = ati2mtag_R7XGL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9442

; General installation section
To extract the drivers just run the driver executable, then stop before setup runs and get into the extraction directory (likely and AMD folder on the root of your windows drive).
