Hi, anyone actually connected a Surface Pro to an iMac to enable the iMac to act as a monitor?

I know the Mac supports target mode to connect mac to mac, but not sure if it will recognise a windows device in the same way. My guess is no.

Also, the 29 inch iMac input if Thunderbolt, so not even sure it's possible to get a mini DisplayPort to Thunderbolt cable (or if Thunderbolt is backwards compatible in this scenario).

Any info would be appreciated, even if it's to tell me I'm wasting my time.
