*Which* “initrd”? There are many of them. The ones *inside* the ISO image
does not work for loading the ISO image from an existing partition.

If you want to load the ISO image from an existing partition, you must use
the hd-media ones, which I have described already.

Also, IIRC, the ISO file must be on a FAT filesystem, because at that stage the installer can only mount FAT or ISO9660.

It is not clear to me what the current problem is.

Neither to me. From the first post I understood that the boot process failed after loading the kernel, i.e. before loading the initrd and running the kernel, so whether the initrd could find the ISO file was irrelevant.
