Thanks Dick! After my problems updating to 10.12.4, and now this, I’ve decided not to even try again until 10.12.5. A number of people, including myself, have reported problems with the Thunderbolt ports on their Minis with 10.12.4 (hence the black screens). I assumed that by the .4 version, the OS would have been getting quite stable, and certainly not than worse.

These have been reported to Apple, and may more heavily affect Beamer users than others. Updating is not recommended until the problem is fixed. The bugs cause these programs to hang.
