No, you cannot use a thunderbolt cable to connect a non-thunderbolt monitor. You have to get a Mini DisplayPort cable instead. Even
if your HP monitor has a socket that seems to fit, a thunderbolt cable cannot display any picture.

No, according to this support page, you can only use Mini DisplayPort cables, not Thunderbolt with the older iMacs.

Will this cable enable you to use the Mid 2010 iMac with Mini Display Port as a display for the new MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt in clam shell mode?Best Answer:
No. The 2010 iMac does not have Thunderbolt, so it cannot be used with this Thunderbolt cable. However, you can use a mini-DP cable for the purpose you described with the 27" Mid-2010 iMac, because the MacBook Pro supports DP output on the Thunderbolt port, and the 27" Mid-2010 iMac accepts DP input using Target Display Mode.
