    NO -- Wine can NOT be used to install drivers. And even if it could, they wouldn't work because you need Linux drivers, not Windows drivers.

    And ... I strongly support the advice against hacking your system to allow the X-server downgrade to install the older version for the fglrx drivers. You will almost certainly enounter problems down the road doing this.
    Ubuntu 17.04 Mate, Mint 18.1 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    The situation will not be changed by future versions. However, since 12.04.1 is supported for 4 more years, you have plenty of time to plan a new purchase.

    The most likely negative outcomes of downgrading X is that you have issues:
    - installing/upgrading packages
    - with the default Ubuntu desktop (Unity)

    I personally don't consider those catastrophic, as long as I can live with xfce desktop (which I personally like better) and can boot to a terminal or LiveCD, back up my data, and do a reinstall. If a sudden borked system and/or impromptu reinstall doesn't bother you, then check out: https://launchpad.net/~makson96/+archive/fglrx

    Obviously, you should have some backup OS/partition as a more stable option if you need your system for work/school. Consider yourself warned!

    Can you be more specific? Where did the boot process get held up?

    You were supposed to follow the directions on the link I gave you...
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:makson96/fglrx
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install fglrx-legacy
    I've never seen that installer program before and I have no idea what it does exactly or whether it's reliable.
