I am trying to change the 'install' behaviour for the meta-cedartrail image so that the installed system has a different grub.cfg file. Is there a file I can bbappend to achieve this?

image_live.bbclass refers to the 'install' syslinux label that triggers the install, but I've not been able to get from this to how/where grub.cfg is created.
This is currently rather crudely implemented here:

meta/recipes-core/initrdscripts/files/init-install.sh

A better deployment mechanism is something being discussed and which
should make this more configurable.

For now, you could bbappend initramfs-live-install_1.0.bb and replace the
init-install.sh script with your own.
Thanks. I've already got to look at that script anyway as it fails to
install to an internal USB drive on a DN2800-MT board as (I think) it
isn't waiting long enough for it to enumerate when booting the
'install' image.
Hrm, I thought it waited indefinitely for the device to appear. Or is it
finding something else and bailing out of the loop? Where is the failure?
