Hi Kete,

I believe your BIOS enumerated your drives differently than the
installer. Either way, I would load grub.cfg manually and make any
needed edits manually before booting, with 'e' in the menu.

In preparation, I might copy guix.scm from its Guix store location to
the more accessible root folder using a rescue USB stick (or the
installer USB itself).

If you have trouble getting into GRUB from your hard drive alone, you
can also boot from the installer USB and load grub.cfg from there.

You seem to know GRUB, so I keep more basic comments to myself. Please
just remember that loading modules via 'insmod' will enhance GRUB's
capabilities as you go, especially 'insmod normal'.

Kind regards
