Does anyone know if you can put a 2017 MacBook Pro into Target Disk Mode then connect it via Thunderbolt 3 to a new 2020 iMac and boot off of that disk (essentially using the MBP as an external drive to boot from)? I'm trying to look for an option to use my new 2020 iMac screen with my work MBP. I just upgraded from a 2011 iMac where I had Target Display Mode, so it's unfortunate that I can't do that anymore (but I knew that when I purchase it). I don't want to drop $40 on a Thunderbolt 3 cable if this isn't possible, but it seems like it should be. Thanks.
