When did you look there?

It has a section at the top called

	Installing NetBSD 9.0 or newer on a x86 system with UEFI

that tells you *not* to do anything special and some screen shots of
the first part of the process.

Do not drop to the shell, just select "Install" and follow the installer.

If that does not get you a system bootable from your hard disk, we need
to look closer at what went wrong.

If you still have it installed that way and can boot from USB stick but
not from hard disk, we can also try to figure out what is wrong and help
you manually fix it - but you need to give more details about the failure
mode first: what goes wrong if you try to boot from hard disk.
