I did something like this years ago. I forgot if I used LILO or grub,
but in any case, I configured the bootloader to boot the installation
image directly.

I'm guessing at the moment that is one of the hd_grub ones in:

Then IIRC, the installer allows you to select partition + path to the
cauldron mirror. Perhaps needed to do an expert installation to be able
to do this (forgot).

Don't remember any specifics anymore, so above is not of much help.. but
I know it is possible. I used Google btw for the bootloader
configuration. Hopefully documented on the Mageia Wiki, else please add
once you figure it out?
