That should be the raspberry pi firmware trying to configure the
network interfaces for a network installation.

Search for the pi 4 here:


Yes, this should be in the INSTALL.* files.

I recomend to unzip the uefi firmware into the dos partition of
the sd card after "dding" it. Don't worry about overwriting files.
Once the ufei screen is loading hit the key shown to enter the
setup. Disable the 3GB memory limit and be sure that the boot order
has the sd card on top, if not you can think the system is locked
when it is trying a pxe boot.  If you want to make a usb installation,
use sysinst, this way you'll have control of the disk layout. But
don't forget to copy the dos partition (or extract again the uefi
firmware) and check the memory limit and the boot order.
