Once I ran the netinstall iso with qemu/kvm and installed onto a usb thumb
drive I'd taken care to preliminarily insert into a usb port on my
desktop machine (otherwise the connection is rarely made).

A recipe of this sort (where sdb represents the aforementioned thumb drive)
worked for me (it was a few years back):

 kvm -m 512 -hda /dev/sdb -boot d -cdrom your_netinst.iso 

Might be perpendicular to whatever you're asking, but it seems rather
open-ended whatever you're asking, so I said to myself can't hurt.

Mrs Hessler, the teacher, considered me her employee, and I played along with
this to keep the frown off that somewhat shapeless face she had crowned with an
inappropriate platinum pixie. I regularly fed her made-up news items from
imaginary newspapers, and she always bought it. ‘Drone Strike on a Strip Club’,
for example. -- Thomas McGuane, https://granta.com/grandma-and-me/
