Need help with OSX installation on HP G42 notebook

Question

Hi

I am currently running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on my HP G42 laptop and since the software-center got messed up while I tried to install Virtual Box, I am sharing my system details via terminal (lshw). I have highlighted the information that seems more useful. Please let me know if installation of OSX would be possible on this machine or not?

The 1st Gen Intel graphics will need workarounds, and your WiFi card will need this. ?I'll need more info, i.e. Dev/Ven IDs, for the audio codec.

It's definitely possible to install, but if you heavily rely on the components I just listed, and they turn out to be not supported, it simply wouldn't be worth installing.
