I didn't know it used the binary divers running from the CD, but I don't know for sure; I haven't checked the install that much, since it installed fine for me
--if you added the Nvidia binary drivers, how did you do that..
Running from the CD (live) is not such a thorough test, it is a more general compatibility test, which might require some setup after installation (and sometimes during, if there are errors)when live distro was working impeccably
The installation actually tries to install into system directories and setup the hardware

You can get a VGA screen type by appending the line vga=792 (as an example) to the kernel boot linehttp://www.pendrivelinux.com/vga-boot-m ... esolution/http://grumpymole.blogspot.com/2007/05/ ... eters.html
e to edit
find the kernel line and add vga=???
--also since you are not getting a desktop, what do you see on the console that are errors on the boot/install
