PLEASE HELP!
I just installed Windows 7 Beta successfully from a .rar file, on my testing PC upstairs, where I test operating systems. I installed my network driver, I did slmgr -rearm to make it a trial, I changed the BIOS date and time to Jan 9 2009, but I cannot seem to be able to install my NVIDIA graphics driver. I have a NVIDIA GeForce GT 520 graphics card, and have been able to install this driver on all other versions of Windows that I have tested (including Vista, 7 (Final), 8, 8.1, and even 10), but it won't install on here. It says it is compatible and brings up the terms, but then once it starts installing, it stops, and says NVIDIA Installer Failed, and my graphics driver is not installed. In Device Manager, it is just labeled as Standard VGA Graphics, and when I update it with the files in the DisplayDriver folder, it restarts, and has done nothing. Please help.

TROUBLESHOOTING THAT I'VE DONE:
1. Updated the driver with the files in the DisplayDriver folder (DOESN'T WORK)
2. Tried to install it doing a clean install (DOESN'T WORK)
3. Tried installing it with only the graphics driver selected (DOESN'T WORK)
4. Putting the time back to normal then trying installing (DOESN'T WORK)
5. Installed DriverMax, DriverBooster (DOESN'T WORK)
6. Installed Driver Talent (just said it Stopped working)


NOTE: I don't mind if the solution is advanced, because this is my test PC and I do not have personal files on it.

Because the PC I am installing it on has that Graphics Card.

First ever GT520 driver, if it doesn't work, then it'll never work:

Does the installer make any log that you could obtain? We might be able to deduce why is it failing from one. If yes, would you mind uploading it to a pastebin and posting a link?

GT520 maybe a little bit too new for build 7000.
Try the driver for vista and see if it will work.

WARNING: If you got your driver from the PC manufacturer, then get rid of it and download the drivers from Nvidia. Installing Nvidia can be easily done in Windows 7 Build 7000 but you will need a third party software called, 7-Zip file manager. First, make sure you have the Nvidia setup program made for your card and also make sure it's made for Windows Vista not Windows 7. Next off, is to make sure 7-Zip is installed (you will need it.) You should now be able to right click on the setup program and their should be a box that says, "7-Zip." Go to 7-Zip --> then to extract to (the name of the setup program.) Once you've done that it will extract it to a folder that should have the same name or close to the same name of your Nvidia setup. Press the Windows logo key and the letter, "r," (without quotes and any punctuation,) and let a run Windows pop up. Type in, "devmgmt.msc," (without quotes and punctuation,) to open the, "Device Manager," or you could go to the start menu and without quotes and punctuation type in, "devmgmt.msc," and press enter. Now, go ahead and click on the arrow to the left of the, "Display Adapters." It should say something like, "standard vga adapter." Right click on it and click on, "Update Driver Software." Click on, "Browse my computer for driver software." Make sure that, "Include subfolders," is selected. Now, navigate to the folder of the extracted files. Click on, "Next." It should install now. I tested this on a real PC with an Nvidia GeForce GT 740.
