So I recently got a new Apple Mac mini, 3.6GHz Core i3 to use as a replacement for my older mini that was a music server. I read about using Thunderbolt to make a screen for the mini to my iMac Pro, but it didn’t work at all. So I brought down my Intel Mac Air with 2 Thunderbolt ports and read how you connect them and “magically” should be able to use the screen.
Well I tried everything, including a Command-F2 that was supposed to activate things but never got any indication that it knew something was there. I tried multiple ports and multiple thunderbolt cables, but nothing seem to work. I ended up calling Apple Support and with two different support people, they could not figure out my problem either. I guess I could’ve had it escalated, but after two hours for what I thought was a simple solution, I felt that if I really needed to, I could use an HDMI cable into hook it up to my TV. But I would like to know if I missed something as it seems this should work.
Does anyone know of a simple way to do this and if this is possible?
