    Uninstalled Intel matrix driver, now computer won't boot

    I have windows 8 and windows 7 installed on the same hard drive (AHCI)

    On my windows 8, i updated to this: because i thought it will make hot swapping work properly. After installing it, my computer won't detect my external HDD. so i uninstalled it because there's no option to roll back drivers and it didn't create a restore point.

    I uninstalled it and my computers goes on a boot loop (has the windows 8 BSOD, way too fast to see the error). After a while, my computer will say that it will attempt a automatic repair, but never actually works.

    B4 i can't even log on to my windows 7 partition, but now i can.

    Anybody know how to fix this?

    sorry if this is the in wrong section.

    EDIT: I fixed it. Apparently i can still boot into safe mode for windows 8, uninstalling the intel matrix storage driver dind't uninstall the actual software from the control panel. After i uninstalled it from the control panel, everythings works normal now.
