You are running XP with the onboard graphics now? I thought you had wiped the HD.

If you have wiped the HD as reported then you'll need to confirm you have onboard graphics turned on in BIOS.

Unplug GEForce card and all peripherals and other HD's, try booting Win7 HD to install again.

So you did not wipe the HD as you indicated earlier? This can solve installation issues.

Normally if you unplug the video card you must enable onboard video in BIOS setup, but if XP is working with card unplugged it has likely defaulted to onboard on its own. But I would check.
