    atipcie.sys error after windows 10 upgrade




      I am getting following error at boot after upgrading from windows7 SP1 (64bit) to Windows10:




      Cannot load the operating system because essential driver is missing or corrupted. (Have a dutch system, this is a translation)


      The system is/was working fine in windows7. (Did a rollback after the update failed)


      I have a NVIDIA GPU with latest drivers plugged into my PCIE slot. (see other specifications below)


      The file in the error is there when I go look for it. But I'm not sure it working properly and wether I even need it?


      As far as I know this is the chipset driver for my PCIE slot?


      What I have tried so far:


      1) After upgrade to windows 10 boot to safe mode => same error

      2) After upgrade to windows 10 boot repair => same error

      3) Rollback to Windows 7

      4) Installed the AMD latest chipset drivers for 780G => this does not seem to have changed the file.


      Could somebody confirm that this file is the chipset driver for my PCIE slot? Does somebody know how to troubleshoot this issue?

      I will happely provide more info if needed.
