I think that the Mac mini 6,2 SMBIOS is better for your system than iMac 13,2 but it's your decision.

Based the Mojave installation guide, after initial installation the my build wasn't able to complete the boot up.
See attached images screenshot and EFI (thumbdrive). What are the missing efi and kexts ?

Leave it longer - I have seen installs hang at that point for up to an hour but go on to complete.

I tried again leaving for an hour and it still don't work, verbose mode changed to Apple icon with empty status bar running forever, only mouse cursor is working.

boot from USB Installer (Mojave, High Sierra, Sierra), normally it takes around 3 minutes, you can see the GUI
