    Lightbulb Connecting 2 iMacs - 21.5 and 27"
    Hey Guys,

    I have been trawling the web over the past week to find an answer to this question.

    How can I connect and slave my 2011 iMac to my 2010 iMac? The newer one has the Thunderbolt symbol and the older one has more of a |0| looking symbol.

    Hitting cmd f2 on the bigger slaves it however hitting cmd f2 on the smaller does nothing... I imagine there is something very simple I am missing?

    Please help,

    Thanks in advance!

    I think you should be connecting Firewire to firewire, not Thunderbolt.

    I don't think the 2010 models have a thunderbolt port. As gsahli said I would use the firewire method.
