How To Mount The APFS Physical Store On Mac?

I erased my Mac in macOS Recovery Mode recently for macOS reinstallation purposes. However, the computer rebooted and the Apple logo popped up when the download was completed, and at 3/4 of the bar, it suddenly changed to a crossed circle. I booted into the macOS Recovery Mode one more time by pressing the Option + Command + R keys and checked the Disk Utility window, only to see a drive named "APFS Physical Store". I tried to erase the drive to macOS Journaled but I can't mount it still, although I clicked the Mount button several times. By the way, the drive bar shows grey all along. Can anybody give me a fix? Thanks a lot!

Hi there, from my perspective, I would like to give the entire drive erasing a try. Follow the steps to complete such a task:

Step 1: Hold down Option-Command-R at startup; this will boot macOS Recovery Mode over the Internet.

Step 2: When the main Utilities window appears, select Disk Utility and continue.

Step 3: Click the View button, then select Show All Devices.

Step 4: Eject and disconnect any external drives to avoid accidental erasure.

If you don't see the Scheme option, you haven't selected the top level of your internal drive.

Step 6: Click Erase. When the erasure is complete, quit Disk Utility.

Step 7: Select Install macOS and follow the onscreen instructions.
