possible to run as headless
greatings I have recently aquired an early 2008 24" Imac with what i suspect is a dead nVidia 8800gs card ... a search of ebay indicates that a replacement card is pricey and likely to fail aswell
(diag led 1 and 2 light up, 3 flashes once and stays off after, 4 stays off)
no chime unless video card is removed
I am thinking of what i can do with the hardware
the screen looks functional so getting a controller board and using it as a monitor is an option
the logic board does chime if the video card is removed so in theory i may be able to get it to boot ? (previous person has already removed the Harddrive)
so assuming it will boot
will it run as a headless/ no video card server ?
or anyone have sugestions as to what i could do with it ?
Is this a good question?
