FWIW since it seems the issue might be related to vbios in some way I also tried the UseVBios=0 workaround... same result
nvidia 0000:01:00.0: Invalid ROM contents
NVRM: failed to copy vbios to system memory.
NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x30:0xffffffff:819)
NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed
I said it could be related to vbios in some way since it seems the driver cannot detect/recognize its bios :
Model: GeForce 310M
Video BIOS: ??.??.??.??.??
Card Type: PCI-E
DMA Size: 32 bits
DMA Mask: 0xffffffff
Bus Location: 0000:01.00.0
log with UseVBios=0 below...
