No, there are no USB ports nor a CD/DVD drive. [1]

I'm familiar to loading firmware from a USB stick but I was thinking
that maybe there is another way of providing these files to the
installer. Maybe a netboot image [non-free] that contains some
firmware to at least make the network functional?!
Maybe some script to insert a firmware file into the netboot image?
