Macs have served me incredibly well for the past 15 years. They’ve been trusty workhorses through a dual bachelor’s in Multimedia Art+Design, three entrepreneurial business ventures, a Silicon Valley Tech job, a Doctorate in Chiropractic, Nutrition and Neurology and travels to over 20 countries. Lately, however, there’s been a disappointing onslaught of hardware and software problems with batteries, operating systems, hard drives, video cards, logic boards. What is going on at Apple?! Steve is rolling over. After a decade+ of scattered hard drives, expensive data recovery and lost files, I’m consolidating and organizing it ALL on the new mothership: the 27″ iMac.
Does anyone know if you can daisy chain multiple Macs in Target Disk Mode using FireWire 800 to FireWire 800, then Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt??? (I stumped the guy at Apple Care.)
Clearly, I’m the geek of the family.

Love my 27″. But keep a laptop around for those cafe days, I just can’t get stuff done on iPad.

I’m pretty sure that will work. Trying to think back to my tech support days, but Thunderbolt wasn’t the norm. I want to know if it works for you!

@nathancashion agreed! Just got my 2011 MacBook Pro serviced and it’s as good as new! And also… the daisychaining didn’t work, but I think it was definitely a problem with the last daisy iMac and not necessarily the technique. It might work if all the machines are running properly.
