You can try to do the following things: [1] Set Linux command line in GRUB simple to nomodeset (change modeset=0 to nomodeset), and see if you do boot to text mode (runinit 3). Actually, you should have "nomodeset 3" to have multiuser run.

[2] Once you are able to boot to your 6 getty consoles, you should be able to go to kernel tree, and find .config to see if your GForce 635M is set (CONFIG_NVIDIA_bla bla bla), and find if this is Y or M. Try to run CLI command "make menuconfig" and then go to device drivers to see what is set, what not.
