So last night I removed my GTX 1060 and installed my new ASUS Vega 64. I just booted back into Windows and installed the AMD Radeon drivers from AMD's website. While updating the drivers my screen turned black for a little (that doesn't raise any alarms obviously). But it stayed black and after a while my PC just shut down. When I rebooted back into Windows my pc got stuck at the Windows starting screen (scanning and repairing drive D: 100%). Then I booted into Safe Mode, backed up all my important data, formatted my drive and installed a fresh installation of Windows 10, only to have the same problem again. I also tried DDU'ing my drivers but to no avail.

How can I get my Graphics drivers installed without corrupting my PC?

full system spec? include make and model of the psu
CPU: Ryzen 7 1700 @3.4 GHz
MOBO: MSI X370 GAMING PLUS
GPU: ASUS ROG STRIX VEGA 64 Samsung HBM2 memory
PSU: Corsair VS650
Boot drive: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB

I'm measuring my power usage but I've only seen a max of 280W in a GPU-Z test (not a stress test, I cannot run benchmarks because I can't enter Windows normally with the GPU Drivers installed, and benchmarks won't run in Safe Mode).

Edit: Thanks for your quick reply btw :)
