Could you explain how you installed GuixSD and what exactly goes wrong
with GRUB (error messages, etc.)?

GRUB 1.x is unmaintained AFAIK, and it’s incompatible and has a reduced
feature set.  It’s unlikely that we’ll add it to GuixSD.

However, if you have troubles with GuixSD and GRUB 2.x, then we should
certainly fix them, either in GuixSD or in GRUB!
