Hi!

I installed drivers (341.01.03) from the official site and chose "Nvidia Web Driver" in SysPreferences but when I reboot it returns back to OS X default drivers.
My videocard is not initially supported in Yosemite. I can use only OS X default drivers and highest resolution I can set is 1024x768.

Most likely, I am doing smth wrong, so please explain step-by-step.
Also I coudn't install Clover on HD, I boot from the usb drive - maybe it's the reason why it returns back to default driver?

Thanks in advance.

the option in system preferences is just cosmetic. You have to use the boot flag nvda_drv=1 to use the drivers. Even with the flag it will still say you are using the default drivers but you are not.

I forgot to say, when I use nvda_drv=1 it crashes on the loading and automatically reboots.
