Hi Cindy, first try a different Ethernet cable, despite the fact it works with another computer. Your Windows computer may have a slower port that works with that cable whereas your iMac might need a better cable.
If it still does not work try this:
Go to menu > System Preferences and select Network. On the left column select Ethernet, then click the Advanced button.
Select the Hardware tab and on the dropdown menu next to "Configure" change it to "Manually". Make the rest look like this:
Click OK, then Apply.
If this still results in "cable unplugged" it almost always means your iMac's Ethernet port is NG.

One additional thing to try, if you have not done so - after connecting the cable, restart the Mac.

I booted into my win7 partition and port was disabled, enabled it and worked on windows side. shut down and booted back into Mac and will not work, says cable unplugged, no matter what I do. Does not make any sence to me.
