Yeah, I did that later. The tarball there was the first thing I found,
though, and its ISO subdirectory contains only kernel and initrd :/

In contrast to e.g. ppc64el, which ISO to use is hard to figure out.

(As I wrote, the latest ISO didn’t work, I had to use an older one.)

No, this was the ISO subdirectory, not netboot, I use -net nic -net user
and so don’t have netboot set up. This is a throwaway VM for a oneshot.
