Hi T, I managed to download it in the end. Got it waiting to go but just wondering if i've got the skill to do it. Still struggling to get my audio working properly.

Download and unzip the two attached kexts, install them both to /L/E with the kextbeast app. Reboot and your audio should work normally. The 6200 guide was written specifically for Sierra. I've not tested these audio kexts with El Cap. So no need to install them for El Cap just wait till you have installed Sierra.

Hi T, those Kexts are working fine with El Cpt, just thought 'd test out for you. Now to try HS, can i just straight update from app store or do i need to do a full install again?

An opinon i have learnt to trust T, lol. I had thought it might still be very glitchy to try I'll go with Sierra for the time being. When i do the i7 build, with i just be able to pop this SSD into it and off i go?

Not likely as the hardware in that will not match your HP 6200. Find a User Build that utilizes the same board and CPU and do the fine tuning with specific kexts which are needed. The I7 system will need to boot UEFI to work the best. You will be booting sierra legacy on your 6200.

You can download iMovie for free from the MAS. Don't know what iWeb is.
