I don't think virt-install can use http install for HVM guest.
What are you trying to do? Install HVM guest? If yes, just use the
bootable ISO.
For most distros you can then convert it to a PV guest later using
either one of the working kernel-xen packages from other distros or a
self-compiled xen/pv_ops kernel.

If you're trying to install it as PV guest but virt-install doesn't
support it (like for Debian/Ubuntu), it might be easier to copy
xen-compatible kernel and initrd to dom0 and create Xen configuration
file by hand.
