You can start be first following my clover guide to create the installer.
Use the bootpack E7440 in post #2, but leave out the DSDT/SSDT in ACPI/Patched.
Also leave out Voodoops2Controller in Kexts/Other and replace with this one, I believe it's Synaptics. Use the release version
Lastly, remove Kexts/Other/LE/AppleHDA_ALC292 and replace it with AppleHDA_ALC255 from post#4 under 10.11.4
Once booted to Clover GUI, hit F4, then continue with the installation.
Compress and attach /EFI/Clover/ACPI/Origin folder here once you have it up and running.
The raw files will have to be patched and compile.
