I would like to use my IMAC as a monitor for my X1 Carbon. Even though there is a mini display port on the X1 Carbon, it won't recognize the monitor. Is there a driver I can download to make the computer recognize the monitor?
Note, I have seen more recent Lenovo laptops directly connected to the IMAC and it is able to be used as a monitor.

I have done the same, using all possible cables... it is impossible. You can do it only mac to mac.
I have tried to use an iMac 21.5 mid 2011 as an external display for my Thinkpad X1C 5th gen (using target display mode on iMac) using a thunderbolt cable (USB-C thunderbolt - thinkpad / minidisplay(thunderbolt) - iMac), but with no results. I guess this is something that can be done only mac to mac.
