large sur – MacBook Professional 13″ Late 2013 – Can not reinstall OS after erasing disk


I have a MacBook Pro Late 2013 running Big Sur which I want to sell. Following Apple’s guidelines to wipe the drive I erased the main Volume Group in the hopes of reinstalling Big Sur.
Ì understand the wipe formatted the drive as APFS. Unfortunatelly I failed to reinstall Big Sur after wiping the disk and restarted the computer.
Now I can load MacOS Recovery from the Internet but it starts Mavericks recovery screen and the main drive is not listed as an option for the installation.

Right now I’m burning 2 USB sticks, one with Big Sur media and another with Catalina, hoping that booting from those drives will allow me to reinstall.

Are there any other options to reinstall the OS in this situation?
