    I plan to install a Hackintosh on my system in a while:

    If it helps, my specs:

    Intel Core i5 3330S CPU @ 2.70 GHZ
    4.00 GB RAM
    64 Bit OS, x64 based processor
    And it's an HP AIO - hpb026in

    The screen resolution says: 1920x1080

    My question is:

    What happens to the OS resolution that isn't meant to be installed on a computer but IS installed on that computer?
    I mean, is it configured to pick the resolution automatically?

    What if, say a Mac has a minimum of 2560x1440 ??

    WHat happens to my screen? Does it stop working? I mean, I know there are drivers and kexts..but just curious to know if the OS is programmed by default to run on the resolution the HARDWARE is made of...

    One more thing:

    Would you guys recommend a OS X Mavericks or a OS X Mountain Lion for my specs?

    Thanks for reading...
