    Well I get the black screen again.
    Known solutions didn't work.
    System/Library/Extensions/NVDAStartup.kext/Contents/Info.plist seems new. There is no more my serial number of my PC!?
    I was able to update to 10.12.1 and I was able to update Nvidia driver.
    After that I got black screen...

    Edit: Well it's working.
    I looked in the wrong file ... :crazy:

    That is correct
    /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist

    And now it is working perfect.

    Did anyone find a solution for the (16B2657) error
    or we have to wait for a newer version of the web drivers?

    The only solution I've seen so far involves editing a) a text file inside the installer and b) the plist for one of the kexts.

    That's too much hassle for me at the moment, so I'm going to wait for Nvidia to get it together. If they haven't got this sorted in, say, a week, I may take the editing plunge.

    Is your bios set for IGFX mode, or integrated graphics? A lot of AMD cards require IGFX mode to work in Sierra. That display 7mb looks familiar, but Nvidia drivers may not require any bios graphics settings, I have no experience with them but everything has changed in Sierra, it may be worth a check.

    I am not on AMD, I am using Geforce GTX 970. I already downgraded my system to the previous build, I will upgrade as soon as there are new upgrades for my GPU

    already tried that, but it didn't work. I already reverted my mackintosh back to the previous build, I'll just wait till something proper arrives.

    In case you are suffering from problem with the failing installation (your os 10.12.1 is not supported...) you can use the old driver like other members described in different posts by doing the following:

    1. sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/NVDAStartupWeb.kext/Contents/info.plist
    2. Then change NVDARequiredOS to this
    <key>NVDARequiredOS</key>
    <string>16B2657</string>

    Your old driver should work until Nvidia will release a working one.

    Do not forget to disable "nv_disable=1" from the boot arguments and add

    <key>NvidiaWeb</key>
    <true/>

    to your config.plist.

    Good luck.

    Yo guys please help what the hell is going on?
    I'm trying to install the drivers and it says i have version 10.12.1 16B2657 so the driver is not compatible.
    It was supposed to be 16B2555 what is going on? how is this possible? what to do?
