You have to close all X window, disconnect, then go to the console using 
ctrl+alt+F1, an then:

1) turn off the xserver and/or the login manager:

sudo service lightdm stop (in Ubuntu)

sudo service gdm stop (Mint)

2) performs the steps again, it should work now

3) reboot (the initrd/initramfs is rebuilt to remove kms which is 
incompatible between NVIDIA and nouveau)

If not, please post again the error message on the list.
