Just updated my Asus Maximus VIII Ranger bios from 2202 to 3007 . After this update nVidia web drivers do not load anymore.
Before update it worked fine. My GPU is Asus Strix GTX960. Using Sierra 10.12.2.

I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it (WebDriver-367.15.10.25f02.pkg) but no help. It always goes back to default OS driver.

Any ideas?
Yes I know "if it works do not touch it".

Sounds like the BIOS update has destroyed the ability to save NVRAM variables. Should still work by enabling the WebDrivers manually through Clover.
Correct and incorrect. Same thing happened when I updated MyHero to 3101 BIOS. Nothing I tried except installing the EmuVariableUefi-64.efi in Clover > drivers64UEFI folder. Download the latest clover package and only install EmuVariableUefi-64.efi - you don't have to install all of the latest Clover. Before rebooting, change to the Nvidia drivers. All should be well after that.

Enabling the Web driver manually does not work. Using Storks EmuVariable trick works.

Same here (Giga Z170M-D3H, f7 to f20 bios), having to use 'EmuVariableUefi-64.efi'. Then it lost the ability to use 'LastBootedVolume'.

same motherboard here and same BIOS version, I need to use 'EmuVariableUefi-64.efi' as well, and I just found my BIOS did not save my time setting anymore, it keeps reseting my time.

Just updated my bios to 3101 on Asus Maximus VIII Formula, this fix worked fine thank you.
