Thread Title: Need help with graphics driver stopping new drive to boot

A few weeks ago I purchased a 3TB Hard Drive to ad to my system, normaly a fairly easy job, but this time I am stumped.
After I installed the drive I installed the motherboard drivers with no problems and the system was booting up with no problems, that was until I installed the AMD HD 6700 Series drivers (that I had installed several times before with no problems) but this time, after installing and the driver asked for a re-start the system got as far as the Win Logo and then Stopped.
I went through to same procces many times but each time with the same result.

The only thing I can think of is that it is to do with the 3TB Hard Drive, as it aprears That I have lost the use of the space over the 2TB part of the drive.
Is it possible that the size of the drive is making problems for the Graphics card drivers?

Anyway if someone can assist me to get past this problem I would be very gratefull.

Thanks for any and all help

Start your PC in safe mode and remove the GPU drivers. Use driver sweeper to remove all the bits of GPU drivers. Do a fresh installation of drivers.

If this does not resolve the issue. Try to do the same with the 3TB HDD removed from system.
