Default Re: windows wont boot but can get into safemode

OK progress, I disabled "restart on failure" and now get to a BSOD with message SYSTEm_SERVICE_EXCEPTION caused by atikmdag.sys. I cant run the uninstaller in safemode. it says windows installer service is not running. I will try to remove the device from device manager and see if that helps.

Coming from Nvidia, where I am used to installing any and every beta driver, that comes out. I didnt realize ATI's preview drivers are highly experimental!!!!
