The all installation is done from an nfs share and … i've got the some error with both virt-install & virt-manager: "ERROR    Error validating install location: Privilege is required for NFS installations".

With NFS, not really. However if the NFS share is already mounted on the host,
you should be able to do --location /path/to/mount, and then inside the
installer have it mount the NFS share. But to mount NFS on the host, you need
to be root.
