Interesting question. A few 740 folks are also experiencing problems with the update. Is the 730 natively supported by the Mac OS? if so, have you tried going native?

Yes, before I installed the nvidia alternative drivers and voilá! Same process in other updates (11.1,11.2,11.3). But now not working.

Works fine with "nvda_drv=1"

Thanks a lot!!

what flavor (brand, DDR type etc) is your GT 730? because i used to have a PNY GDDR5 version and it didn't work even with the nvidia driver, and the solution was to switch to GT 740 for me.

I'm having a similar issue however, I still get a black screen with nv_disable=1, BUT that's with my integrated graphics? So maybe I have to keep it plugged into my GT 730 and run nv_disable=1 to not get a black screen?

Hi,

I can confirm that my NVIDIA GeForce GT 740 4095 MB also stopped working as expect after the 10.11.4 update. Had the black screen but everything was up. I was able to ssh in. Rebooting with nv_disable=1 and then upgrading the NVIDIA Web drivers fixed it.

The 740 never really worked w/o the web driver (for me anyway) until 10.11.3 (or .2?). so this behavior isn't "new" per se. The last sentence part is really business as usual.

This thread is about 730 not 740, btw.

I have a GTX 780 6GB that only boots with nv_disable=1, when I try to boot with nvda_drv=1 I just get a black screen. Any ideas?
