Please tell here also what OS version, probably Windows 10 or the new released Windows 11 ?

If you can access recovery options, can you bootup in safe mode and then deleted the installed driver?

If you using Windows 7 I think there was an option to use last known good configuration or a similar option.

create a bootable windows os USB drive using rufus, boot from it, you can either reinstall with new partitions or fix the existing one from options. You should always keep a bootable windows, Linux and a recovery drive with you for these kind of situations.
