(I haven't used virt-install for a while so my skills on that is
probably rusty).
I'm not sure HVM domU can load kernel and initrd from a http install
(it supports disk, cdrom, floppy, and PXE boot). What you MIGHT be
able to do for HVM:
- create a boot ISO containing kernel and initrd. For RHEL/Centos, you
can simply use CD1 and boot with "linux askmethod" later. Other
distros might have a special ISO for installing from network.
- create your domU with somthing like this (note I'm omitting some
args which might be unsupported, already the default, or unnecessary)

virt-install -n SN244_Test_Test44 -r 8192 --vcpus=16 -f
/dev/vg01/HVMdisk -l /path/to/your/cdrom-boot-image.iso

- boot with "linux askmethod" (or whatever method your distro needs to
specify http install source). You can also specify kickstart here if

Hope that helps.
