I'll keep it short...
intel x25-m won't accept Nvidia Geforce drivers for gtx 480

on reeboot it hangs at the windows startup screen, the swirly windows logo never forms it just sit there.
system repair claims bad driver is preventing windows from starting, system restore tries to remove it but it ends up nerfing the whole install.
can't boot in to safe mode either.
tried different drivers.

any ideas?

Are you sure that the power supply is large enough for your graphics card? The card draws more current when the drivers are loaded which may be causing the fault on your computer.

Well figured that one out, SSD has to be in SATA port 0 or 1...right...
I got to say it's been a nightmare doing a clean install of 7 on this thing.
and it's not the SSD in all it's alpha boot drive manliness causes my HDD which has a vista install to be completely ignored as a bootable drive...but it does show up in my PC options as a lowly storage device yay...

i'm sure my equally useless NF980 based mobo is right in there as part of the problem...
