I wanted to use an iMac (Thunderbolt Model) display as a Secondary Display for a Macbook Air (Thunderbolt Model) using a thunderbolt cable.  The catch is that I am running Windows 7 under bootcamp on the Macbook Air.  The iMac is running Mac OSX.


There is this FAQ, however this does not cover this scenario, since I believe it implies that the iMac is running Windows 7.  (see below).  Does anyone know if I can use my iMac as a display in the same way as I use my Thunderbolt Display when running Windows 7 on my Macbook Air?



Apple FAQ:


18. Can I use Target Display Mode or Target Disk Mode with Boot Camp and Windows 7 using a Thunderbolt-capable iMac?

No. Target Display Mode and Target Disk mode are not supported using Boot Camp and Windows 7 on a Thunderbolt-capable iMac.
