On the 2011 Macbook I am using, the boot process gets stuck before I
can select the drive to boot from, as long as a USB flash drive with
this GPT error is in a USB port.  The few other computers I tried have
no problem with booting from the flash drive.

This means I cannot install the Guix distribution on this Macbook
using the Guix ISO image.

(This is the default UEFI boot process that came with the Macbook.
I have never tried setting up Libreboot or anything similar.)
