Hi! I just migrated to the windows PC from an old macbook pro. With the lower price I decided to buy the PC instead of upgrating one of this year macbook series and also because of its better hardware. However, I still prefer working on macintosh, because I've already got used to it, so I'm wondering whether my laptop be able to install mac os x yosemite.
here is this:
intel(R) core(TM) i7- 4710HQ cpu@ 2.5ghz
16ghz of ram
NVIDIA GEFORCE gtx860m 2ghz
thank you!

Do you have both nvidia+Intel graphics or just nvidia? The difference is important.

Please provide complete details in your profile/signature
(Profile/Settings link in upper right corner of this site)

System: manufacturer/model + bootloader(Clover/Chameleon/Chimera)
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
System: HP ProBook 4540s (Clover)
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx), and graphics capabilities. For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.

I would recommend you use Clover: http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-...oting-os-x-installer-laptops-clover-uefi.html
