On my systems I use a USB key with
linux ks=hd:sdb1/ks_file.cfg 
having only a single physical lun sda1 where the system is installed.
Be aware if you try the proposed solution you have to  use a small USB key
I guess < 1 GByte.
I first tried with a key of 4 Gbyte and it didn't worked after
with an old one of 64 Mbyte it worked perfectly.
