This is the script:

Code:
set root-path 192.168.4.2:/mnt/tank/tftproot/freebsd-13.0
set dhcp.root-path 192.168.4.2:/mnt/tank/tftproot/freebsd-13.0
chain http://192.168.4.2/freebsd-13.0/boot/loader.efi || goto failed

OK, I see what you have... Try this:

Code:
set root-path http://192.168.4.2/freebsd-13.0/
set dhcp.root-path http://192.168.4.2/freebsd-13.0/
chain http://192.168.4.2/freebsd-13.0/boot/loader.efi BSDINSTALL_DISTSITE=http://192.168.4.2/freebsd-13.0 || goto failed
