    I bought a thunderbolt cable and have plugged my rMBP into my iMac because I want to use the iMac as the primary display. I hit command F2 on the iMac and I can see the background of my rMBP on there but it won't let me control anything and doesn't show up all my windows that are on my rMBP. Am I doing something wrong?

    After you do the connections use System Preferences->Displays. To use Target Disk Mode.

    You'll have to use the keyboard and mouse of the MBP, not the one of the iMac. From what you've described, it's the iMac one's you're trying to use?
