    Default Boot Freeze after HDD Install

    I recently ventured to install the recent version of BT5r1 onto my desktop since I am using BT4 in my Ethical Hacking class. The install was semi-smooth with a few bumps that I have already solved myself.

    I have BT5r1 KDE x64 HDD install (dual-boot w/win7) on a custom built desktop with specs:

    i5 2500k
    MSI Lightning GTX580 nVidia GPU

    After the installation I try to boot and it hangs at a certain point saying something about removing a generic driver for (I think) gpu. I'm not sure why, but I can't even get it to load to a prompt so I can attempt a fix.
    I will include a (forgive me) photo taken with my phone as this is the only way I know to show you guys the output that I see on screen:

    If anyone can be of assistance I would be extremely grateful.
    I am not a noob to linux, but i'm not a power user either (yet ) Let me know if there is any information I may provide to help in solving this issue.

    I suggest installing VMWare Server (it's free) on your Win 7 partition. Then, install your flavor of BackTrack in a VM. You might get some more info on troubleshooting the problem. Or, if you can do it, try installing BackTrack solo, and see what happens.
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...
