Hello all, I've got a problem.
I'm booting Linux in EFI.
Using SystemD.
The system boots up fine, then loads the nVidia drivers, wich spout some warnings about ACPI.
Screen goes black (tty, no X11) but the system is responsive (ie: I can log in and reboot)
If I unmerge nvidia-drivers, I can normally log in, and modprobe nvidia.ko module. Starting X, however, results in a flash of the nVidia logo and again black screen and freeze.

Things I've tried:
Going to 3.12.14 - No luck.
Going back to nvidia-drivers 331.49 - No luck.
Any combination of the previous two, no luck.

Nouveau doesn't work(it should support my cards though, this is a Macbook Pro with two nVidia Cards -9400 and 9600-). Screen Scrambled, have to pass 'nomodeset'. EFI_FB is set, otherwise I can't see anything and results in "Blind booting".
This is NOT a metric, however, Ubuntu can be installed in EFI mode or BIOS mode, and use the privative drivers. The kernel version is, however, not as recent(13.10 version). I've also have to pass it 'nomodeset' just to make it boot.

CFLAGS are plain O2 -march=native -pipe
No useflag besides the ones in profile nomultilib/gnome/systemd

UPDATE 1: Tried to fall back to version 304.49 of nVidia drivers, no luck.

Something's gotta do with the parameters passed through nvidia.conf
I'm investigating this issue trying to port the solution from another distro.
If I start the system after having unmerged nvidia-drivers, it'll boot up, load the module, not spouting ACPI warnings, and without killing the ttys.
If I then want to start Xorg, it'll fail saying no screens. If I configure the PCI bus acordingly, it'll fail telling no usable configuration found.
