Trackpad is likely I2C.
No PS2 keyboard evident. Check in Windows to see how it is connected (might be USB).

Backlight control should be available in SysPrefs->Displays. What is the issue?

Audio with patched AppleHDA covered in the FAQ.

Im sorry, but how will I check in Windows? What steps do I need to follow?
Also webcam doesn't work. Not detected even on system profiler.
Backlight control now works, but when I chose the lowest brightness, the screen goes black.

Look at the details in Windows Device Manager.
You'll figure it out if you poke around enough.

Also webcam doesn't work. Not detected even on system profiler.
Assuming it is connected via USB, your USB configuration is probably wrong.
See USB guides linked from the FAQ.

As per Apple design.

Thanks. Now the only problem I have were the keyboard, trackpad, card reader and webcam. I will install Windows later to see the device id I am missing.

- Keyboard
- Bluetooth
- WiFi
- All USBs (2.0/3.0/Type-C Gen 1)
- Internal display backlight
- HDMI output

How can You fix a touchpad ? Can you share me a EFI Folder ?
