Assign storage space
Select the network – either macvtap or bridge, in my case bridge br1 configured during KVM installation

Finish adding the second network and click on Begin Installation

Continue with the installation steps detailed here.
Note: While installing on KVM guest VM, you will not get an option to choose the EFI partition. So just create one root partition. The installer will ask for information on where to install grub.
Select the first primary partition
After reboot edit /etc/apt/sources.list and comment out the CRDOM source.
