If you want it to run during the initial install, then I can't make any sense of how that relates to a reboot. If you want to run a command during the setup, then provide a kickstart file with a %post section: https://pykickstart.readthedocs.io/en/latest/kickstart-docs.html#chapter-6-post-installation-script If you want to run a command after rebooting and display the command output on the console, then use the openvt command, possibly with the -w flag: https://linux.die.net/man/1/openvt > Security is not a concern here.
