Can't boot after driver update - Page 2

So basically, is there any way to revert the driver without booting into the install, even in safe mode? No way to force the basic MSFT driver to kick in instead?

Any hd tv's?

That sucks man... I would follow figure K from this link when you get Windows 8 installed again so that you can avoid having something like this happen in the future. There's nothing worse than having to reformat due to somebody else' mistake, especially after having just reinstalled Windows.

I'm out of ideas for you but follow the guide I linked to once Win 8 is installed again so at least you can boot into safe mode without jumping through hoops next time.

Yeah I definitely plan on doing some kind of backup system, normally I don't backup windows because my main operating system is Mac and that is backed up, but this makes me feel like it's necessary.

Last check before I nuke everything: there is no way to save my installed games? that's all I care about, it will take days to redownload and install everything again.

yes you can backup your saves. Download knoppix online it's a live cd version of linux. It's running off your DVD drive.

to download go here
http://knoppix.net/get.php

browse to your C drive and find your documents folder and backup everything onto external harddrive.


Saves are usually in C:\Users\Your name\Documents
obviously "your name" represent your computer name exchange whatever yours is


BTW next time you install windows again create 2 partitions. There is a window when windows install where do you want to install windows 7 make partitions first.

Create a C drive with about 100 gigabytes or 80 gigabytes and make all of the rest on D drive.

My comp looks like this
C: drive 60gb D: 828gb
always install games on D drive
use C for windows and common programs

This way when you remove windows you don't lose everything you have on your computer only windows and bs programs biggrin.gif

my problem isn't with the save games my problem is with the actual install, I.e the 20GB+ per game, that resides in Program Files (by default).

if I install to a different drive, wouldn't I still lose everything since the registry and whatnot isn't kept?

If they are steam games you can just copy the common folder in the steamapps folder and just copy that into the new steam install and go to install each game and it will auto discover all the files. If they are just regular game installs there are no easy ways to go about it though.
