Default BSOD when installing the latest nvidia graphics driver

About 4 days ago i've installed "Windows TinyXP" instead of Windows 7.
Since then i have not been able to play any games because of an error saying "Driver does not support Direct3D9.0c"
So i tried to install the latest driver, but i got an BSOD looking like this: http://img443.images.../imag0147x.jpg/
So since that did not work i entered "Safe Mode" and uninstalled the driver again...
After that i tried installed the driver as an "Clean Install" by clicking Custom Install, that option should delete old driver data before installing new, so i tried that...
BSOD once again...
I am running in safe mode right now, and i would like if someone could tell me why i cant install the latest driver and how to fix it..
Also, my graphics card is a Nvidia Geforce G210M (Notebook)

Problem number 1: why are you using windows tinyxp ? yes it is stable on some degrees but it has some flaws even when being shrunken down.

Windows XP home or Professional needs a minium of 2gbs of space to install, once installed get rid of the apps or utilities you don't want using add/remove programs and components found in control panel.
I know the author who did tinyxp and tiny7 and he probably left out somethings thats giving you problems.

Problem 2: with graphic driver identifier directly from nvidia.

The only issue is this: TinyXP is not an officially licensed or sponsored product from Microsoft. Dont use a hacked up version of XP and then complain when it doesnt work how you want. Get yourself a real copy of XP and dont use a pirated version. Topic Closed.
