I don't want to have to spend weeks trying to get MX working.

Understood, but please keep trying for a while: you won't be disappointed if you do manage to get MX working :crossfingers: .

I ever briefly considered just running off the live USB, but I don't want to have a USB stick constantly hanging out the side of the device (and it only has 2 ports, anyway)
Don't worry, we make it fly :anispider2:
Perhaps do try first with the updated installer to let it automatically install including grub-installer.
If that will not work to make it bootable, we will help you to run manually the part of grub-installer which will make a proper boot. :puppy:

Would you let us know whether you have made a system update within the MX-live-system before installing.
I must be missing something - I opened Synaptic and clicked Mark all Upgrades, but there's nothing to update (Apply stays grayed out)

EDIT: Someone asked earlier what error there was when attempting the "Auto install Use whole Disk" option - it simply says "Failed to create required partitions. Returning to step 1"

Ok, that's part of it but you need to update the data base, as follows: in Synaptic click on Reload, to update the database of repos then apply the upgrade. If you already did that then I need to re-read to see what has happend.

Haha, that makes sense :)

I updated all the 'system' components, and then reinstalled, and am now happily posting from my installed system! :happy:

Thanks everyone for the help
