I've already read pinned topics but would like to know if anyone managed to run hackintosh on this laptop.
Here are the specs:

PRocessor: Intel Core i7-4710HQ
Chipset: Intel HM86 (Lynx Point)
GPU Nvidia 860M (I will obviously disable it) + Intel HD 4600
Audio Realtek ALC283 @ Intel Lynx Point PCH - High Definition Audio Controller
LAN
Realtek RTL8168/8111 Gigabit-LAN (10/100/1000MBit)
WI-FI
Atheros AR5BWB222 Wireless Network Adapter (b g n )

I would really love to hear opinion from you guys. Will it run yosemite?

I don't see anything unusual about the specs. The WiFi is not supported and will need to be replaced.

I don't care about wi-fi. What about audio? Is it compatible?

Audio: Best result with patched AppleHDA. Google 'patch AppleHDA guide'. Search for suitable AppleHDA or patch it yourself. Apply appropriate DSDT patches.

DSDT patches you need for AppleHDA: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch
Apply: "Audio Layout 12" (change layout-id from 12 to the layout-id used by the patched AppleHDA)
Apply: "IRQ Fix"

Determine layout-id from patched AppleHDA.kext:

First you need to know your codec id in decimal. Then look in the Info.plist for AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext (in PlugIns), find your codec id under HDAConfigDefault (there may be many entries in a sloppy patched AppleHDA or only one). The LayoutID that matches your codec id is the layout id you need.
