    THIS IS AN EMERGENCY so sorry for the punctuations
    so i accidentally clicked on uninstall in crimson relive auto detect and i restores using system restore but now i cant open amd control pannel so there is something wrong and its not safe to test the gpu
    does any body know how to uninstall and reinstall the official bootcamp drivers from apple with out having to reinstall windows?
    and i dont know why but in high sierra there is no option to download the latest drivers for bootcamp there is only an option to restore the drive to a single macos volume
    so i dont know how to even redownload the 5k 2017 imac bootcamp drivers and i cant even find them on apple website they used to be found on apple website but nope i cant find em there either

    Thats great pal it was a bit too late i reinstalled the Whole windows/bootcamp thing but definitly learned that
    I forgot to check the action menu bar in bootcamp assisstant
    And just out of curiosity if i uninstal the amd driver and reboot what happens?
    Will i be able to even log in or the system would crash?

    you'd probably have an overall choppy experience.

    windows usually tries to install some sort of basic driver, but your system wouldn't crash, unless perhaps you did something GPU intensive.

    now, i'm curious: how would you accidentally uninstall the GPU driver again sometime in the future?
    that's not something that just happens.

    Oh yeah, it IS With amd
    Let me explain:
    Just intall the Auto detect Software for amd drivers From amd.com and install it its supposed to be an App for Checking If the drivers are uptodate or not and its supposed to autodetect your gpu for that purpose but theres a Big Uninstall button on the left side of the app a HUGE uninstall hutton and another an express uninstall button underit
    And the Crazy part is that once you click on the uninstall it wont Ask you to confirm anything and I didnt even get the adminstrator Permission Request so once You accidentally tap on that Unsintalling begins immidietly And It can be cancelled but it doesnt revert the uninstaling process so its partially removed and It becomes a wierd situation where Your a simple restart away from crashing everything unless You Got time to reinstall and Restore from a full system image or know what to do with a partially removed GPU Driver
