That reference is(was) particularly important for showing explicitly
that you need the leading slash {"/") for the directory.
The leading slash needed starting in F10,
prior to F10  no leading slash, which caused much confusion
when attempting hdinstall starting from F10 (see bugzilla ref below).

Well, you seem to have figured it out, congrats!
May I ask, just where did you find the instructions re install.img,?



I myself depended heavily on the references following;
not much on the fedora site


hdinstall was thoroughly discussed in these 3 refs:

1)
fedora-list nov 2008 * F10 HD install - anyone successfully done this?
        From: Mike Cloaked  and response by Tom Horsley

2}
Bug 473351 - F10 HD install using the DVD iso file, initiated from grub, fails
