I was at wits end. With a SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) Reasoning coming up, I did not want to do a complete rebuild a computer. Then I figured a way of bypassing the driver from loading. Going to the same "F8" menu, I instead selected "Repair PC." That brought up the following screen:
I selected "System Restore" and chose a time before the update. After a tantalizing wait, I was greeted with the Windows 7 desktop.
After the successful restoration of the computer, I reinstalled the AMD Catalyst 13.12 drivers.
I did an uninstall through the add / remove program. And after reboot, I scrubbed the last remaining trace using DriverFusion. Then I reinstalled the program.
