Hello Kodcu.

According to h-node.org, the ThinkPad T440p uses Intel graphics and not
Nvidia/nouveau.  Graphics are claimed to work with the libre kernel.

I presume you can switch to a TTY by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F2 at least after
booting with nomodeset.

If graphics actually do not work and you do want a graphical system, it
might be possible to use an older kernel.  Add a line inside
/etc/config.scm to the operating-system:

(use-package-modules linux)
(operating-system
 (kernel linux-libre-5.4)
 …

or some other old version.

Otherwise, uvesafb is an option but not a good one.  It would be much
better without uvesafb.
The installer’s config file uses uvesafb, the installed system does not
by default (see
<https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-guix/2020-11/msg00172.html>
which can also be found using the yhetil.org search engine).

Regards,
Florian
