I think Debian had a net install option last time I tried it. Or did it? Might have been another distro.

Not a big deal. Some bootable media can boot to some linux. Any linux can install another system.

Might consider network installs. Things like bootable floppy and various pxe deals exist. I'd also look at GPXE as it supports a whole nohter (Texan speak) world. Netboot.me and BKO are good examples.

Simply taking out the hard drive and using a proper working system will work too.

Can even make a working image on some system and g4u it over.

There is a way to make the ISO image bootable. It means booting from the ISO image kept on the harddisk.

Look at the following link:
