    So have my 27" Imac and have my pc for which i just sold the monitor. Selling the rest part by part including the internal hdd but now i didnt wipe the drive before selling monitor (no time) so can i still access pc on network through imac and if so wipe remotely?

    Thank You!

    The easiest way would be getting the HDD out of the PC, put it into an external (USB) case. Then you can attach it to your new Mac and wipe the HDD.

    You would need a display on the Windows box to be able to set it up. And even then you wouldn't be able to do a complete wipe.

    This is the best and easiest solution unless you can borrow a display for your PC and then wipe it using the borrowed display.
