Can I connect my HP Elitebook x360 to my 2011 Apple Thunderbolt display?

HP Elitebook x360

Anyone figure out how or whether I can connect my HP Elitebook x360 to my first generation Apple Thunderbolt display?  The HP Elitebook has an HDMI port and I'm wondering if I can connect it to the TB display via an HDMI - thunderbolt cable.

@REHBethesda 

 

I can say 99% is NO as mentioned

 

Apple Thunderbolt Displays, like the video input on Thunderbolt iMacs, drop compatibility with all previous standards, including VGA, DVI, and DisplayPort.[6] They are not compatible with computers that do not have a Thunderbolt port, including pre-2011 Macs and the vast majority of desktop PCs.

Thank you, Banhien.  So if my HP PC has a USB Type-C Thunderbolt supported port I can't connect with a Thunderbolt 3 to 2 connector, as I could if I were upgrading my MacBook?

Hello

 

which Elite X360 model do you have ? almost all of them have DP video signal on Thunderbolt port (USB-C) . so for me the display should work.

 

Bye

Not yet, because I need a two-way USB-C to Microport cable.
