I get a blank screen right after "Starting Darwin x86"

Here is the log from when I try booting the Retail OSX Lion installer.

Flags I've tried:
-v
-v -x
----------------------------

Code:
Loading Darwin 10.7
Loading kernel mach_kernel
Read HFS+ file
Using PCI-Root-UID value: 1
nVidia GeForce GTX 560 -4095MB NV1ff [10de:1201]
ERROR: dcdtable_version is 0x1
ERROR: nVidia ROM Patching Failed!

Did you update your BIOS to the latest firmware.

@ Brandon223

What monitor are you using?
With my Hackintosh I use a 30" Apple Cinema display with a Gigabyte Radeon HD5770 GPU with DVI cable. It will boot and then the screen goes blank. My early fix was to unplug the DVI cable and then plug it back in.
May not apply, but ... :wave:
