Is my computer compatible with OS X Mountain Lion?

Hi, I've always wanted to use OS X as my main operating system, but buying Apple computer or building Hackintosh is not for me. I was thinking about installing OS X Yosemite on it, but I found that OS X must run with AHCI SATA Mode. The problem is that my chip (ICH7) isn't compatible with changing SATA modes. What's confusing is that I found my computer with almost the same specs on OS X 10.8.2 compatibility list(http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/in...tops#HP_Compaq).

The only difference is processor, which is E6300 (2.8GHz) not E5300 (2.6GHz), RAM is 3GB not 2GB and video card (I think it's the same as graphics card) is ATI Radeon HD 4350. I wasn't testing it yet, because I don't want to {censored} something up; I just want to ask you simple questions:
1. Is my computer compatible with OS X Mountain Lion?
2. Would it be simple to install and use it?

And most important: 3. Would it be safe?

Thank you for your help smile_osx.png
