I have been using Nvidia drivers for a while and all works great. I have to enter password on boot and would like to see the same password prompt and loader, if I were using Nouveau driver.

Is this possible to use Nouveau driver on boot, so I could keep nice interface while booting and entering password, and switch to Nvidia drivers afterwards?

I'm afraid that might not be possible (I think). Why don't you switch completely to nouveau?

I had a problem with Nouveau as my PC got frozen once every 30 minutes or so.
