That's possible, but can you post the relevant logs to confirm it?
Does anaconda run with nv.
It works with any working X driver. If your question is 'why is my
system using nv not nouveau' and your proposed answer is 'because
anaconda intentionally uses nv not nouveau', no, that's not right.
Maybe nouveau is not supporting my device.
That's probably it. There is a small set of cards that are known not to
work with nouveau which we blacklist to use nv instead. Yours may be one
of these. The output of 'lspci -nn' would help me confirm that.

Can I do both nouveau.modeset=0 and nv.modeset=0
nv.modeset=0 would not do anything. The nv driver does not support
kernel modesetting, and there is no kernel module called 'nv' (the
kernel command parameter 'foo.modeset=0' passes the option 'modeset=0'
to the kernel module 'foo', so nv.modeset=0 just doesn't make any sense
