That was the only document I could find.

I just want to run the Debian/Ubuntu installer from existing
installation without remastering it, or without converting it to a
live disk image.

Here I have a GNU/Linux installation. I am looking for an installer
which can be run as an application as any other application, but with
root privilege, to do a linux installation to an another drive.

I simply tried it using ubiquity. During the installation it will
return an error message as it failed to find CD/DVD Rom. What I
understood is, it will try to load some files from CD/DVD. I want load
the same/similar file from hard-disk instead of loading it from
CD/DVD. I think these files are vmlinuz and initrd.gz.
