What am I missing?
Or can you only create an EFI system installation when you're already
running on one?
So I ran the install image in qemu with EFI firmware and ran through the
graphical installer. The guided graphical install failed, manually
running guix system init worked. You can find the outputs under .
Looks like a bug, but I have no idea how to give you more info.
1. I wish it would be possible to system init an efi system from a bios
2. The guided gui installer should not fail when installing inside qemu
with EFI. The qemu cmdline was
$ qemu-system-x86_64 -m 2048 -smp 3 -enable-kvm \
-bios /usr/share/edk2-ovmf/x64/OVMF.fd \
-nic user,model=virtio-net-pci -boot menu=on,order=d \
-drive file=/dev/nbd1 \
