    Question macbook,lcd broken, booting external display like main screen...possible ?

    Hello,

    first I would to apologize for my bad english...
    There is my problem : I have a macbook mid 2007 with broken display and maybe other bad issues (fan, sensor, superdrive,...) ????
    the macbook goes on and boot and I can use an external display, but I would to run AHT on it for testing the machine and when I boot in target disk mode (the superdrive is KO) with the "D" key I don't see anything on external display even in clamshell mode, I think because I boot with the AHT on DVD an this is a "basic" system.
    My question : it is possible to modify the EFI for than the macbook boot the external display like the main screen or it is possible to modify the AHT for booting on external display
    thanks for your answers...

    Default

    I have a similar problem. I've gotten hold of three MacBooks (two 2.0GHz and one 1.83GHz) which are all broken. I managed to build one working from parts of all three but now I have two spare motherboards.

    I want to take the motherboards and build them into a box and run them as a server/mediacenter at home.

    However it seems like the computers refuse to boot without the "built in" display connected. I don't need a display since my plan is to administer them through ssh and vnc.
