Alternative to floppy kickstart for vsphere-iso provider?

Hi,

I’m trying to kickstart a centos8 using the vsphere-iso provider.
As far as I can see there is only the option to provide the kickstartfile using the “floppy_files” or the “http_directory” option.

The 1st one doesn’t work since centos 8 seems to have no more floppy modules/drivers.
The latter would work in some way but I would require HTTP access to my build-pipeline, which I would preferably not want to do.

Is there any other option? The centos ks boot option also allows for cdrom, hd and such things. Is there a way to provide the files as one of those?

Sounds like a feature request. :wink:
