But that happens only when you try to install from an Ubuntu NFSRoot -
which you don't need to.

You can extract about any base image you want, from a Debian NFSroot,
even Redhat and SuSE, and then call their package managers, etc. from
the NFSroot into /target.

That way, the initrd from Ubuntu is not used at install time.
Or do I get the problem wrong?
