Which distro can be installed only with WIFI?


I mean I can't use the wired connection,
but I already know that Arch and GUI install tool distros can support wifi installation.

But my question is FreeBSD and Slack.
How about them?
Are they capable of installing via only wifi?

Now I'm installing Slack. And seems to install full package from USB key.
Very interesting. If this include network tools entirely, then it doesn't even bother if I were able to use network or not.

How about FreBSD? Does it also install full distro from USB key?

GhostBSD does. It is FreeBSD based.

Edit: I forgot to mention. ANTIX full and base iso. Core Iso requires a land connection. Which is based currently on Debian Stretch. But you can run testing, unstable, or experimental repos in it. It is installed on My google Chromebook. Does not use systemd like Slackware and BSD. It fits into what you require also.

In case you are wondering on how AntiX can look < depending on the user skill set and preferences>. I am playing with some theme and icon installs on my Dell laptop today.\

I think the recent version of AntiX Core will install with wifi available, (I was just trying it out the other day, but I'm not absolutely sure now).

OpenBSD will set up wifi whilst you install it too.

antiX-core inludes some wifi drivers, but antiX-net needs a wired Internet connection.
