HD2000 Graphics is not supported. You need a supported graphics card.

Thanks for your response. Further question, which version(10.12, 10.11,or even easier version) is ok for these HWs? I mean, no additional graphics card. Thanks very much for your professional support.

If you want to try to install and run MacOS, then you have to add a supported graphics card to your computer. Without it you may not even be able to install MacOS.

The choice of the graphics card will determine what version of MacOS you can use.

If you don't want to spend on a graphics card, then forget about running MacOS on your computer.
