Mac - Not booting after driver install and reboot

OMG!!! I cannot believe it! The latest drivers made my computer unusable!! :(

I just updated the wacom drivers (to see if there is anything new) to 6.3.37-3 on my macOS high sierra 10.13.6 and the update required to restart the computer after the update. As soon as the drivers updated the tablet stopped working (also nothing on the oled screens of the tablet) so I had to use a mouse to click on the "restart now" button. When the computer restarted the apple logo and the load bar showed and when the bar loads to approx 50% an "prohibited symbol" or "crossed zero" is shown and the OS does not load. My computer is unusable now!! I am so frustrated and mad! I am a professional and I need it to work! Tried PRAM & NVRAM reset, Recovery partition - disk utility - first aid... nothing works... :(
Does anyone know what to do?? I cannot afford to reinstall the OS (have a lot of software and it means two days of installation and configuration). Can I somehow manually uninstall the drivers remotely from another older system on a separate partition? I need a fix ASAP. I am losing work. :(

Thank you!!

Hi,
If this is happening it's because there was already a problem with your Mac before you installed the Wacom Driver and rebooted. The driver has no influence whatsoever on how your Mac is loading the OS. The Wacom Driver will only start working after you log in to your user account.

You need to contact Apple Support.

I am sorry but I cannot agree with this. My Mac was running just ok for almost a year with this OS and software. I had a very clean install and everything was working fine up until the very moment the driver was updated. Then the MacOS refused to boot so it is more than obvious that the Wacom drivers caused the issue. There were absolutely no other changes. I take great care with my system. The only "mistake" I did was, that I didn't made an backup of the system as I usually do when making some bigger changes (I do it every time before some OS/system upgrades) but this time I didn't made it because I never thought that a simple driver upgrade could ruin my whole system. I am now two days without a functioning machine and I need it urgently working (I am now struggling with my laptop). I am also in contact with Wacom support by email but have not received any solution yet.

Wacom support cannot resolve this problem for you. If your operating system is not booting, only Apple Support can help you.
