I wrote to Ludovic Cortes that you should include Legacy Grub into GNU packages, because it can be installed in any place (e.g., on the root partition), but Grub 2 has this feature blocked by default (at least, all people in the Internet say so). Or it would be better to unblock this feature in Grub2. Even with the powerful Grub people can make less harm to their conputers than, for example, with fdisk, which you like and include everywhere.

I installed GuixSD with big difficulties, and at the end I could not boot it. Of course, I booted via Aptosid Grub, but it is not very nice to use a bootloader from another OS.

You do very amazing and advanced things and do not worry about some simple things. A good bootloader is important.

Just, please, recover the ability of Grub 2 to write on the disk. At now moment it says that it needs to calculate block sizes, something like that. When people write --force option, it says that everything is ok, but in reality it does not write on the disk.

Happy New Year!
