Re: Architecture of .wic approach; image of images

Let me then first describe the issue I am having, which I think
results from my misunderstanding then.

I would like to package a UEFI bootloader (GRUB), bzImage and
initramfs.cpio.gz into an FAT partition using WIC.

1) Should I adapt my existing my-initramfs recipe as follows:

IMAGE_FSTYPES += "wic"
WKS_FILE = "my-disk-image.wks"

my-disk-image.wks:
part /boot --source bootimg-efi-initramfs
--sourceparams="loader=grub-efi,initrd=my-initramfs.cpio.gz" --ondisk
sda --label msdos --active --align 1024 --use-uuid
bootloader --ptable gpt --timeout=1

2) Or should I create a new recipe that builds the WIC and depends on
the initramfs?

Remember, I have no rootfs other than the (non-bundled) initramfs.
Depending on the answers, I will come up with the issues I see.
