Intel iMac as an external monitor - Guide

I had a 2006 Intel iMac that died (logic board / graphics card failure) and instead of consigning it to the bin, I aimed to turn it both an external monitor for my screen-less 2009 MacBook Pro (LCD driver failure, failing battery) and any HDMI device I wanted. I had seen this done with G5 iMacs, but never with Intel ones, which use different display types, so decided to have a go and was successful!

@moomike - Michael - Sadly all of your work here won't be found if you just post it here. The best thing to do is create a IFIXIT guide that way someone who also wants to do the same thing can find your efforts. Follow this link: Create an IFIXIT Guide
