Can I remove drivers from Win7 installation before Windows boots? Tags: Windows 7 Drivers Computers Last response: December 19, 2012 7:43 AM in Windows 7 Share mrkikker December 12, 2012 11:59:41 AM Guys, I've recently added a new mobo and a new CPU to a certain computer. this computer is now giving me BSOD's shortly after the windows 7 logo appears. booting in safe mode gives the same result. already tried to set a restore point and did a chkdsk on the drive. imo the old drivers from the old mobo are acting up. is there a way to remove old drivers from a windows 7 installation (using System Recovery or another pre-windows tool) after which windows 7 will boot 'vanilla' so i can install new drivers?
