I want to use my mid-2011 iMac as a secondary display for my Windows PC.
- My iMac features a 1st gen
Thunderboltport, running on macOS Sierra
- My Windows PC has a
Mini DisplayPort, and is running on windows 10.
My main concern is that (if I understand right), the 'Mini DisplayPort Source to Thunderbolt Monitor' is not guaranteed to work with any kind of cable, and after lots of googling I haven't found a case where it worked.
I know that there are several related answers for this topic, but there are lots of caveats (OS compatibility, Mini DisplayPort to Thunderbolt port limitations), and I'm still not absolutely sure about some details: - Is it possible? - What kind of cable do I need to buy? - Do I need to use some specific software like AirDisplay?
