Yeah this probably won't work because of the NTFSness, but what's the
exact error message?  What does the log on tty3 look like?

What's the exact error message?  What's the log on tty3 look like?

What, like you're not exporting the subtree?  You need to do that -
anaconda needs to access <tree>/images/install.img to be able to
proceed.  Again, what's the log on tty3 look like?

Yet again, what do the log files look like?  Show me /tmp/anaconda.log,
/tmp/storage.log, and /tmp/syslog.
