Can I run an iMac headless?
I have an early 2009 2.9GHz 24" iMac with an NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 512 MB that is real close to dying. If I can find a replacement, it will cost way too much for this old of an iMac. I'd still like to try and run OS X Server (10.11-max) and know the Mac mini can run headless when configured properly. If I disconnect the graphics card, will the iMac still start up? With it running OS X Server, I can remotely connect to it and use it as a media server or something else.
I just ordered a used late 2015 iMac to replace it before it doesn't work anymore. The screen starts fragmenting, gets real fragmented, then locks up.
Is this a good question?
