Sounds like what I virtually always do, install from network, beginning with fetching
<http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/stretch/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/debian-installer/amd64/initrd.gz>
and
<http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/stretch/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/debian-installer/amd64/linux>
and placing them where Grub can find and load them. Nothing gets downloaded that
isn't needed. No need for any iso file.
