If you can setup an nfs or ftp/http server somewhere the fastest method
is network install via kickstart (using pxe if you can)

It might take a little longer to setup but you'll make up the time very
fast. And if you do not have exactly the same hardware (same components
& firmware versions) it's way safer.
