MacBook – using iMac 2008 (display port) as external monitor with MacBook Pro 2013 (thunderbolt)

displaymacbook prothunderbolt

I am trying to connect a MacBook Pro 2013 to an iMac 2008. The latter is a 24 inch model and has no thunderbolt, just a Mini Display Port.

Any idea how to connect the iMac to the MacBook Pro, to use as an external monitor?

This will not work since Target display Mode is a feature only available on iMacs since 2009.
