Re: HD / SSD boot Failure (Four green-flash loop)

I suggest you read the article very carefully, it seems you have overlooked/misunderstood what is written:
USB mass storage boot is available on Raspberry Pi 2B v1.2, 3A+, 3B, and 3B+ only. Support for USB mass storage boot will be added to the Raspberry Pi 4B in a future software update.

Why do you mount /dev/sda ?

what is the output of:

I would expect /dev/sda1 that needs to be mounted.

Ernst that's a trivial change in /etc/default/hostapd (effectively DAEMON_CONF is already set to /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf), it's only relevant if somehow you want to point at another conf file.

Re: How to singulair a PI in ethernet?

I suspect that I know the cause of your problem but I can not confirm because you masked the mac address.
What I think is that you got a cheap "fake" ethernet adapters and both have the same mac address.
