I meant the boot media as vmlinuz + initramfs or an ISO or something bootable,
i.e. the contents of that media.

Devuan does not provide such installation media / data.

It seems that netboot (pxe-style) is not a target scenario for Devuan,
which is a shame.

Thanks for the suggestions Karl, I appreciate that you are giving me a hand,
but these details are actually not what I looked for. I have a pretty solid
ground for the choice of the technologies (disk copying is not applicable,
for multiple reasons) but this thread is not about our systems. It is about a regrettable installer deficiency in Devuan.
