Hey guys, I'm really at my wits end with this one, I've been working on this one for going on 5 hours now. Anyway, I recently upgrading my graphics driver with the new AMD Catalyst Control, and when I rebooted, it was stuck at the black Starting Windows screen. I went to go restore to an earlier time, and of course, my luck, there were no restore points because about a month ago, I turned it off for whatever reason. Huge mistake, I know, but moving on. I tried to boot into safe mode, but it gets stuck loading atipcie64.sys, so safe mode's out. I tried running a startup repair, but it tells me that it cannot run a repair. I drop down the details and it says something about a bad driver, and reboots to get me stuck at the Starting Windows screen again. I go into the command prompt through the recovery console and run chkdsk and SFC, but everything comes up fine. So last resort, I burn a Linux Live cd, which is where I am now. Great! So I try to install the two top programs (Crossover and Wine) to try to uninstall everything AMD installed previously, but OF COURSE, I'm getting errors with that too. So here I am, in Linux, with almost no knowledge of the operating system, asking for help.
I managed to run into an AMD Clean Uninstall utility, but me being in Linux, I can't figure out how to run an .exe file, so PLEASE, any direction would be amazing, I'm lost. Thanks guys.
Ok, I tried that three different ways. How you told me, again with the onboard selected in bios, then again with the low res setting when I hit F8 at startup, all no good, still stuck at Starting Windows. I'm never going to update my video driver again after this hahah
