First, I just noticed that you are using an OEM DVD, so everything I say
could be wrong -- I don't know what is included on the OEM DVD.

If you have *Vista* drivers for the graphics card you must supply them
to the install program before it actually starts installing, else when
the installer tries to boot your machine you will have the wrong drivers
installed on the hard drive. At some point early in the install, it
will give you a chance to supply any extra drivers.
I believe the installer runs in 'safe mode' until it tries to reboot
your machine -- that's why the installer can use your graphics card
during the early phase even without the right Vista driver.
