It works if I choose other options after booting up.

Ive tried xconf, xorgconfig, booting with nvidia drivers, deleting xconf with boot (which actually got me the furthest, other than the nvidia drivers). If I boot straight with xconf, it gives me a half black screen, half green/white screen and I dont get the bt logon screen at all. Running xorgconfig doesnt help at all. I can get the bt logon screen when I boot with the nvidia drivers, but I get some error when I try to startx. If I delete xconf from booting, I get the logon screen, but then it does the half black, half green/white screen.

To me, it seems like I have to have the nvidia drivers to boot, but it errors out. I will take some pictures later today of each result.
