In my post, I also mentioned that a plain dd of the ISO file onto an
USB pen drive works for the netinstall use case.

However, the dd method does not work for if you want  the install to
happen from the pen drive (w/o network connectivity).

The OP was having problems with the livecd-tools, the links quoted
earlier provide a manual method to do so.
