    My Imac's HD is dead. I was playing with it- can it be used as a monitor for my Macbook?
    I connected Mini-Display cable- nothing.
    Imac boots to Apple screen- which goes nowhere.

    I plan to replace HD in Imac- just playing with it.

    Nope. Target Display Mode only works when the iMac is booted into MacOS.
