??? I regularly install from a local mirror without using my local http server,
and already did so on windows too. From install-tl --help

      -repository url|path
           Specify the package repository to be used as the source of the
           installation, either a local directory via "/path/to/directory" or
           a "file:/" url, or a network location via a "http://" or "ftp://"
           url.  (No other protocols are supported.)

Did you actually try? If so, what went wrong?
