351px-Nvidia_logoFreeBSD user asteriskRoss shows us a quick fix on getting your NVIDIA card to work with UEFI boot on FreeBSD 10.1

Unfortunately, the UEFI boot loader on FreeBSD 10.1 doesn’t play nicely with the proprietary Nvidia driver, x11/nvidia-driver. When I try to load it in loader.conf(5), I experience a kernel panic.

The workaround is to remove the entry from /boot/loader.conf and instead load the driver in rc.conf(5), by appending the following line to /etc/rc.conf:

Code:
kld_list="nvidia"

The issue may be related to PR 193770.
