I've gone ahead and pushed bug# 27705 to master. That means that there's now a
new bootloader "grub-mkrescue-bootloader" in gnu/bootloaders/grub.scm . So you
can just override its "configuration-file-generator" by one that doesn't emit
the "search" command (remainder should be fine as-is).
I wonder what would happen (to Grub) if someone did guix system reconfigure in
a system booted from the ISO9660 image, though. I think it would be better to
not install any bootloader in the case of mkrescue and guix system reconfigure.
We might want to do a follow-up commit that adds a dummy installer to the
"installer" field of grub-mkrescue-bootloader. WDYT?
