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.
