Default "Failed to copy vbios" - "RmInitAdapter failed" on 9300M GS on Sony Vaio Z11

Hi,

i tried several driver Versions (177, 173, 177 beta) on several linux distributions (gentoo, ubuntu, archlinux) and several kernels (2.6.25 - 2.6.27-rc7) but i get the same behaviour every time:

The laptop has a hybrid graphics system with an Intel graphic card on PCI:0:2:0 and a GeForce 9300 GS on PCI:1:0:0:

Code:
lspci | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GeForce 9300M GS (rev a1)
Intel Graphics also has a Problem, which is investigated here: http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17508, but I also cannot get its NVidia card to work:

Code:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Device0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    BusID	   "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection
X can't start. /var/log/Xorg.0.log shows:

Any help would be highly appreciated.
