slackware dies after amd drivers

My slackware was working fine until I decided to install the drivers for amd HD 7770. When install them the slack does not boot any more. It hangs with kernel panic?!

Is there anybody with the similar issue?

Could you try to boot with one of these options to see if that works? "acpi=off noapic noacpi"

It sees somehow that this driver change something it shouldn't change. Before installing it I rebooted the machine a few times - it was working.
Now it seems that the volume group is not activated at boot time. My slack is installed on LVM. When I mounted with the install disk and go to my slackware and re-run lilo i saw:
"linux experimental device 0xfd00 needs to be defined"
The kernel panic is fact, because the machine does not find the right initrd,
Very strange this problem became true when I installed the above mentioned drivers.

I solve my problem with rebuilding the initial ram drive and lilo configuration.
Thank you jostber for your replay.
