Default Re: Enable in bios onboard VideoCard then startx do not start

There are two issues here.

1. The onboard card not working.
The log shows initialization of this GPU failed. Here is excerpts from the log:-

[ 236.922550] vmap allocation for size 16781312 failed: use vmalloc=<size> to increase size.
[ 236.924674] NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x23:0xffffffff:652)
[ 236.924689] NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed

To fix this, the ways are :-
a. Do as the message says i.e. increase vmalloc size. The README contains more details about it.
b. Move to a 64-bit OS. This exhaustion issues are much less likely in a 64-bit OS as compared to a 32-bit one.

2. X failing to start when one of the GPUs fails initialization.
Internally NVIDIA filed Bug 740018 to track this issue.
