    Dear Friends,

    I am desperate to find a way to make an iMac running Windows 7 (Unfortunately, installing Mac OS is not an option) as a second monitor for my Macbook Pro 13" Mid 2014 with OSX 10.9.4.

    I have a Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt cable, which I connect, but none of the computers can see each other.

    Target display mode (⌘-F2) doesn't work for iMac, because of Windows installed.

    Need you help! I would appreciate any suggestions!

    Best regards,

    P.S. Tried most of what Google prompted, which is very easy when you have Mac OS on both machines and didn't find anything about my issue.

    Target display mode only works in OSX, there is no fix for this.

    I can't see why installing OSX should be an issue just put it on a second partion it is less than 20GB after all.

    It is not an option, because it is the university computer given to me as a master student and their rules don't allow to change it.

    Thanks a lot anyways!
