rx580 crossfire, new install, black screen with cursor on windows 7

Well, i just removed a sapphire r9 290x tri-x OC, and replaced it with 2 RX580's by MSI.

 

after the reboot, post installation of drivers, i got to a black windows screen, with just a cursor. i let it sit for about 30 minutes.

 

i remember something similar happened with the previous 2 AMD cards i installed over the years, and i had to get a previous version of CCC.

 

anyone have any suggestions?

 

ive already tried re installing the driver, did nothing. also, i have dual monitors and the second monitor doesnt seem to ever come on, or even be an option.

 

the only way i can even start windows right now is by disabling the cards in device manager.
