It tries to PXE boot because it finds no bootable storage device: there is no
active partition, or no boot code in the MBR sector of the device that you
expect to boot. Installing Grub to a partition leaves the MBR untouched, so it
might not yet contain anything other than partition data. The partitioner I use
installs MBR code automatically. The one in the installer may have needed to
have this step explicitly asked for. It can be added post-install manually. 'man
install-mbr'.

Mounting happens well after the point you have reached.
