Provide an offline tool that generates an installed image for physcial installation.
Create fancy images to work around lack of generic install environment.
Some systems cannot effectively boot off remote devices (e.g. USB, optical drive), and may only have facilities for a single block device to be installed. For these systems, there would be advantage to being able to run an offline tool to install a system to a secondary disk on a running system or to an image file. In some cases, the running system may not match the target architecture, and so an optimal solution would be able to construct an installed system in an architecture-
