F18: nvidia drivers - system hangs on boot

Hi,

I have installed Fedora 18 64Bit on a laptop with NVIDIA Geforce 635M. I tried installing the Nvidia drivers as in this guide:

After following all steps and rebooting, the system hung on boot. I couldn't even ctrl+alt+fX, just reboot. I booted into single-user mode and saw in the xserver logs this error:

But when editing the GRUB boot line, I saw that the options "rdblacklist=nouveau nouveau.modeset=0" were already there, so this is not the issue.

What else can I do?
