I see from your previous posts that you are using a GTX 960.

Maxwell cards are not supported under OS X without an NVIDIA web driver. You'll need to wait until NVIDIA releases one for 10.10.3 in order to have your 960 working again. It's common practice to hold off on new OS X updates until the web driver is released, especially for those who depend on it.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, I forgot about the driver thing, well then I have to wait for an updated driver -_-'

This one isn't compatible FYI

So I just was able to update by changing build number and getting 10.10.3 Nvidia driver to install on 10.10.2.

Still had to do some buggery-pokery but didn't have to remove card. Did require an EFI card to do it this way.

I have some details on our blog, keep in mind that for a mission critical system I would strongly recommend waiting until official Nvidia Driver drops. But for those who like to fiddle, curious if others trying my "trick" find it works or if they run into similar or different problems.

Same here. My XFX eyefinity 5 5770 works, but the visiontek eyefinity 6 7750 does not (and it worked perfectly for the last several releases). Arg, why must apple bork stuff so regularly...

I updated to 10.10.3 last night, and now my Radeon 7770 doesn't work anymore. It was fine before the update. Thanks Apple.

I am using Macbook Pro 15" Mid 2014 2.2 ghz base model. I am using my computer usually connected to Thunderbolt cinema display. After the update of 10.10.3, magic mouse and magic touch pad started to work laggy. Is there anybody experienced this? What must I do?

I think there is some Bluetooth issue. I tried both Wi-fi on and off. This update is really strange.

My 7550, now you 7770. I'm getting a bad feeling the entire 7xxx series to a dive.

This sucks. Is there someway to maybe pull the driver from 10.10.2 into 10.10.3 and get things working again? Anyone know?

Gio, what card did you use that stopped working?

I had a thread where I warned about this.

Now that Apple knows which GPUs it uses and that there are technically no other GPUs they need to support, they can remove all other cards from drivers. Like how they haven't added any NVIDIA cards to the drivers since 10.8.5.

But you guys should start a new thread about AMD GPUs no longer in OSX. This thread being specifically about NVIDIA you'll not get much help here.

Hey, Lou: you da' Man! I downloaded these two updates, then upgraded to 10.10.3. This is why I keep a legacy EFI card in my machine, attached to my email monitor. OS Installation went smoothly, then ran the updates you linked to, and everything is happy time!

Interesting. I wonder if it's the flashing that has helped this to work, or if there is a different driver for the 79xx cards versus the 75xx and 77xx cards that seem to be borked. My card is not flashed...

The GTX 760

Was able to boot by installing the Radeon 5770

Just to report furthermore: I replaced my Radeon 7770 with the Radeon 5870 that originally came with my Mac Pro, and now everything is working fine.

I guess I'm going to stay with the Radeon 5870 from now on. I don't do heavy video rendering and I decided to build a gaming PC just last week, so I don't need too much video power anymore for normal applications. There doesn't seem to be any difference in the displaying of general interface elements with the 5870 compared to the 7770. I was using the 7770 just because it had been given to me by a friend, but now that Apple has decided to break stuff (on purpose?), it seems too much of a hassle to always be looking for a workaround when they decide they don't want me to use a specific video card.

Never got to flash my 7970. Seems like rocket science to get an apple boot screen going. Looks like give it a shot over the weekend.
