Hey, can I install any version of MacOS on this PC? I want to see if there is any pre made MacOS install I can use on this as I want to repurpose this old desktop of mine and make it something more of a iMac.

No you can't install macOS on your old AMD AIO system, as the CPU and APU are not supported.

Nothing recent. You may find a patched Kernel to get OS X El Capitan or Sierra to run on your system, but I don’t think the Vanilla kernel will work.

Also you won’t get graphics acceleration with your system as the APU isn’t supported and you can’t add a discrete GPU. This would make using macOS really difficult and uncomfortable, as you could have severe graphics issues undert the simplest of graphics processing.

There are limitations on which systems can run macOS due to the components being used. Your HP system is firmly entrenched in the incompatible hardware group.
