So, i tried to install newest catalyst on my pc and huge problem occured.

 I downloaded 13.9 online and ran the installation, everything was going as expected until screen froze with pixel mess and windows crashed with it.

Tried to reboot and after initial motherboard screen what you have at the beginning, follows a black screen with underline blinking, nothing else.

In short, windows won't load at all after failed driver installation.

specs:

- last catalyst version 13.5 if i remember correctly

- Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit

- ASUS HD6950 DCII 2GD5 with bios upgrade to 6970 (I swiched bios back to 6950, didin't help)

- ASUS P8P67

- Corsair 800W power supply

- Kingston 16Gb DDR3 ram

- Crucial m4 SSD 128Gb

- Intel i5 2500K

- 16Gb DDR3 RAM

Probably you have a file system error because of the unexpected reboot. Use the Windows DVD and enter recovery mode. It will attempt to fix your boot configuration.

Solved

I got myself a win 7 cd and when I was changing boot order i noticed that somehow my OS drive was changed to last on boot order list and thats why it failed to boot. I have 5 drives; 4 hdd and 1 dvd drive and first (hdd) and last (hdd) had switched places... all others were on where they always have been.

Weird, but I'm just glad it's all good now.
