If you are getting these errors on this hardware (ul30vt in my case) it's most probably due to a bios issue.
I had bios version 203 I updated my bios to 210 and now the nvidia drivers are working.

Thanks for the help!

Can you switch between the NVIDIA and the other gpu?

I haven't tried, and kind of gave it for granted that it wouldn't work ...

What I've done is have 2 separate installs with a common home partition one for ordinary and unplugged work with the intel drivers and the other for plugged in 3d intensive work.
