You can try the command line option. I had to use it for an ea6900. If the link in the wget command doesn't work just put in whatever you use to get to the build you want.

This router is not functioning correctly with DD-WRT.
It boots but very unstable.
As soon as you start adding your configuration, after boot it will go to boot loop, annoying. _________________ Netgear R8500

Do you mean you put a nvram set command in the start up command? I thought you use Telnet/SSH to the router and set the nvram variable, commit it and then reboot the router and confirmed that the variable stays at 1. It is possible that during bootup the router detects some problem and decides to use partition 0 instead of partition 1. If that is the case, you should see the partition variable changes back to 0. If you change it again in a start up script (command), then you won't know if it has changed back to 0 during bootup.
There are two nvram variables, one called partialboots and the other called partition. For partialboots, it should be zero. For partition, my router that uses stock right now has 1 for the variable partition. You don't need to set or change the variable partialboots unless you see a non-zero value. As for the variable partition, if yours is 0, you can try setting it to 1 and see if it makes a difference. If you have 0 for partialboots and 1 for partition already, then the problem is not related to these two variables. i.e. something else.
