I have been trying to install the amdgpu-pro linux ubuntu driver and I get thrown back to a login screen after a reboot.

Specs:

Samsung NP370R4E

Intel Core i5-3200m

2GB AMD Radeon HD 8750M

6GB Ram

Ubuntu 16.04 (Linux Kernel 4.4.0-66-generic)

Secure boot is turned off and there are no errors raised when running the installer under either root user or with sudo

When going to a tty, I can query dpkg that the driver is installed with no errors raised. When I uninstall the driver, the system miraculously works again

I get redirected to AMDGPU-PRO Driver for Linux Release Notes when i query for a driver for my graphics card.
