Well, you can't do it.

Simple as that, Vista doesn't allow for ATi & nVidia.

There are people who actually run a setup with a Radeon for graphics and a GeForce for PhysX. I personally don't know how but it seems to be possible.

As you said, you need Xp or Windows 7.

And its a fairly simple process.

You plug in your main GPU (in this case ATi) then you install its drivers, then you install your second GPU (nVidia now) and install the physX drivers.

You can't install 2 sets of drivers in Vista. It doesn't allow for that.

You need to go into safe mode and erase the drivers now

Well, you'll still need to erase the drivers.

And what order did you install them in before?
