opensuse ignores the presence/use of it?

Just putting some context around that question,

since -- from within the chroot'd Guest -- apparently I

(1) can't manage to write to the OVMF bios boot menu
(2) startup.nsh is ignored

If I were to create a standalone .efi, e.g.,

grub2-mkstandalone \
-d /usr/lib/grub2/x86_64-efi/ \
-O x86_64-efi \
--modules="..." \
--fonts="..." \
--locales="..." \
--themes="..." \
-o "/boot/efi/EFI/opensuse/grub-standalone-test.efi" \

how would I convince opensuse xen/ovmf to use that^ on boot if startup.nsh
is not used ?

Would I have to rename it as grub.efi or grubx64.efi? That doesn't seem a
good idea.

For the one-time boot, enter the "Boot Maintenance Manager" and choose "Boot
From File" to find the specific efi image. To create a permanent boot option,
choose "Boot Options" -> "Add Boot Option". You can change the boot order with
"Boot Options" -> "Change Boot Order". But it seems your guest has problem to
save NvVars correctly, I'm not sure if the boot option will be saved.
