You have to supply a network interface when doing automated network installs using install.cfg

netDev=em0 for example

This causes a problem when trying to use the same install.cfg across multiple hardware platforms. I can understand this kind of granularity when supplying hard disks but, for network, it makes more sense not to.

Generate an install.cfg for automated network installation.
