I am a professional photographer skilling myself in the use of theatre lighting.
I have 2 old Showtec 575S moving heads and 2 High end Intelibeam 700HX scans

A Hog 1000 has been offered to me cheap but I am not sure if it can handle my lights standard.
I owe a SGM Studio 24 which does not have them included and seem impossible to install. It keeps refusing without telling me which data is wrong and I have to set up every single dmx setting of which many I don't even know what they are talking about (typing in the list I found online).
To make a long story short, the SGM is unasuble and I don't want to make the same mistake woth the Hog 1000.

If it contains factory standard the above fixtures then I can take the risc. If I have to find it online or at the manufacturers I won't buy it.
They react very slowly pointing me everywhere but no solutions.
If I have to load it, I won't buy it. I don't have any floppy's or writers for it.

Can somebody help?

I would think the intelibeam would be in the hog library.

But you are right, the hog 1000 line needs a floppy disc for any saving or updating. Unless they are selling it for under $250 USD I would look at any of the PC controllers out there. I think you can get Chamsys to output DMX for under $100.

If you don't need to use it for more than 5 hours at a shot the basic dongle is $15. A full universe without time restrictions is $150 https://www.chauvetparts.com/product.htm?pid=237407&cat=21980
