I recently fucked my pc up by installing the latest AMD drivers. Couldn't get past the lock screen.

I tried to revert to a restore point but, well, it failed and the installation would not boot at all afterwards.

Thanks a fuck ton, AMD and MS.

    @irene nope, AMD's program suggested them and I installed them thinking that I should stick to the recommended driver instead of the latest one in the future.

    Good thing we got safe mode

    @jespersh I don't think you can uninstall gpu drivers in safe mode. At least that's what I tried and failed in.

    @gashadokuro for the nonboot part

    @jespersh booting to safe mode was not possible either at that point.

    @virustark24 that's what I ended up doing. I lost nothing but time.

    AMD drivers are good on linux. The open-source drivers are even better. Because AMD actually adds code from their drivers to open-source. Other GPU providers should look at this and do the same. (Looking at fucking NVIDIA)

    I personally wouldn't care about it being open source when it does not work...

    Reminds me of the old days and why I decided to never touch AMD again...

    @electrineer you can definitely uninstall gpu drivers in safe mode, you can use DDU (look it up), it works great for AMD drivers

    @endor that's what I did but it seemed like the same driver was still installed

    @electrineer 🤔 you sure? DDU always worked perfectly for me, full wipe of everything. Did you do it while in safe mode?
