Because obviously something went wrong, and instead of trying different installation methods we should try to solve the problem you encountered.
OK, i started the GUI desktop and used the "hardware Drivers' GUI to attempt to activate the NV drivers. Nothing turned green which I think is what it should show if the driver is activated. Grey if not activated. Grey before and after.
I ran the log report tool before and after and saved and renamed the log files.
Do you want them uploaded to this thread? Does the Nv in your user name indicate you are with Nvidia?
I am writing this thread from a different system. I will upload the logs in a few min from the system in trouble.
Files attached now.
I will wait for your response before I reboot and get into error and low resolution mode.;
based on past experience when I reboot the error log will show unable to find or run the NVIDIA driver.
It is hard to use the GUI when stuck in 800x600 mode.
Thanks for your continued assistance.
