You wouldn't need no yum update if you enabled the updates repo during
install. It's a single click.

Your proposal sounds interesting, but I have two questions/issues:
     1. The installation is not finished after reboot because we have
        firstboot. How to trigger firstboot in a rebootless install?
     2. Imagine after the installation you switch rebootless to the new
        system and install a kmod. But you are still running the kernel
        from the installation medium and kmods get installed for the
        running kernel, which not necessarily needs to be the one that
        was installed.

Christoph
