I gave you mine, they should work.
I connected it to a monitor, now I can see the wallpaper on it. So basically it was booted to the installer, but the screen on the laptop is somehow not working properly...

I have 1.3.0.
Try updating to that and replace your EFI with the one attached, it's worked for many people.

Also, make you have "load legacy rom" enabled in bios.

Still stuck at Start InitDeviceTree
Are you using the EFI I attached? Did you update your BIOS? Make sure your BIOS setup is identical to what the guide says.

I posted this on another thread. Try this.

I was getting the same error (stuck on start initdevicetree) installing Mojave 10.14.5 on my dell 7559. (Bios 1.2.9). I tried a lot of different options in bios, different usbs, plugging and unplugging chargers etc. Here is what worked for me (UHD model, 16 gb if that matters)(also installed on hdd)

1. The recommended settings (DISABLE: vt for direct i/o, advanced battery charge mode, support assist system resolution, firmware tpm, secure boot)(ENABLE: load legacy rom option)(OPROM setting enabled (when u click on the option it shows the option to disable and says boot mode is set to: UEFI with legacy OPROM; secure boot: OFF)
2. Used USB 2, AC charger connected
3. Used this clover folder(replace the files on your efi/clover with the files in the folder I attached and check (worked for me).

Good luck.
