Log is not complete, so it's hard to see what went wrong. After your last line

(++) using VT number 7

normally you should see PCI scan lines. If you really don't have them,
then the driver is hung pretty badly.

If it works with your original config (with "nvidia" driver), try to
isolate the problem: first, remove all twinview options. If it works,
try only these:

        Option      "TwinView"
        Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync"     "30-50"
        Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh"   "60"
        Option "MetaModes" "800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x480"
        Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"

(Note that your MetaModes line does not match your Modes line later in
the file, it does not
list all modes, I don't know if it matters).
