Inject setup file into standard ISO installer

Is it possible to inject a config file into the PVE ISO installer, so it could boot and configure itself automatically, sort of like a cloud-init install? It would be nice to setup network, user account, storage, etc. At the end after booting from the ISO, you would then just reboot and login.

Have I missed this feature somewhere?
no, this isn't supported at the moment.
Thanks. I'm trying to figure out how I could run Proxmox on a remote dedicated server. Are there any automated install techniques available that might help?
other than that, it doesn't get any more automated than next-next-next :)

Thanks, I do like and appreciate the simplicity of the installer. I have considered the link you sent, and will try doing that locally first.
