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.
Hi. I have tried copying your clove to try it on my 7559 i5 6300HQ laptop. But still having an error to the startiny screen ... my FHD screen has to change anything about the screen parameters to go through that step?
I am installing Mojave 10.14.6 with bios 1.3.0

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

My computer is Dell 7559, i7, FHD. Bios 1.2.2.
I tried installing Mojave 10.14.6 but got this error many times.
Someone who has successfully installed please give me the EFI folder and the version of Clover you used with the installation options in Clover. Thank you very much.

I looked into the error and tried to add kext GenericUSBXHCI.kext, as it still received the same error, this is my EFI directory. I used Clover version 2.5k-5100. Please help me review it and give me a solution. Thanks very much.

GenericUSBXHCI.kext is probably not needed

use USBInjectAll.kext make sure to use a usb2.0 stick and try all your usb ports on your laptop

On my Dell 7559 laptop there are only 3 USB 3.0 ports without USB 2.0 ports.
I also feel very strange because in the discussion post here no one has ever encountered this error.
