Can you install the OS without the Quadro and then reinstall it once the install is complete?
Try it in another slot?
Been there and done that and it doesn't make a difference. In that the minute the NVidia card is in. Its just bluescreen after bluescreen on boot.
As with regards to another slot, there's only 1 PCIe x16 on the mobo.

Yes, sorry. Slight finger slip. It is a NVidia Quadro NVS 440. Its actually got HP Part numbers but when I access the details through HP support site (http://h20000.www2.h...eriesId=1152210
). There are no downloads available. But as NVidia has drivers for the card, I'm left stumped on what's going on.

I've used Windows XP, Vista & Windows 7 on an array of different DC7800 SFF which I believe share the same motherboard as the mini-tower without issue. We had HP OEM Nvidia NVS 285 or NVS 290 though.
See if manually map IRQ addresses helps (Keep SATA, LAN and Video on separate addresses; e.g. 5, 10, 11), save, power off & back on. Some machines would fail on ACPI related issues until this was performed. You might be able to flash the bios to another vendor/OEM on the card but do so at your own risk.
This will be my next step I suppose.
