Presumably for the test ISO image you were manually copying
/System/Library/CoreServices/* into the image yourself? Hopefully with the above
changes then you should no longer have to do this.

No, I used pathspecs and I created the image the exact way that grub-mkrescue does.

I think the bootinfo.txt is for IBM CHRP machines while the BootX is for Macs.

Ah no, that's not correct - BootX is an enhanced bootloader written by Apple to
enable multi-booting with MacOS X and grub-mkrescue is assuming that it is being
installed on a HD containing MacOS X with BootX in the default location.

True, but during installations with `grub-install` that file is
installed there (on disk installations this path is relative to the HFS
bootstrap partition, so `/boot/grub//System/Library/CoreServices/BootX`
is the full path for on-disk installations) anyhow. I think this is to
get GRUB booted via the `mac-boot` command in OF.
