I tried to create a new Everything ISO using the Plus kernel-plus
instead of kernel .. I got a bootable ISO, but anaconda keeps erroring
out without kernel and with kernel-plus in the repo.

I don't see an easy way to make this work.

If you are physically near the machine, just plugging in and mounting a
thumb drive with the said RPMs copied to it and doing:

yum install

Should work
