installing amd chipset drivers on an nvidia sli board, can it be done?
If I were to change the chipset drivers to an amd set would it boot the computer and run amd crossfire? or am I doomed to this sli board and expensive cards for the next couple years?

Well, you might as well update the BIOS to see if that changes your luck. Some AMD boards do support SLi (actually most new ones from the last few years support both).
Is your chipset the AMD 990 ?

Hmm okay. Is there a newer BIOS revision for your board ? Sometimes there is a difference in the BIOS revisions to the PCI-E multi-GPU support.
