Sorry, I was completely wrong, the new liveUSB has e2fsprogs,
however I probably do have the problem with ahci module too, and I
confused the old /dev/sda harddrive which is now missing, and
/dev/sda USB. So this is it. My HDD is not visible with the new USB

OK, one more correction - the ahci module is loaded and HDD detected,
but /dev/sdf is not created. There is just sda to sdd..

Once the USB installation is booted, it’s actually udev which takes the
responsibility of loading modules like AHCI (the problem David reported
is in the *installed* system, where the AHCI modules have to be
available in the initrd.)

So there really are this many storage devices in the machine?

Yes and no - there is a USB reader with many interfaces. They are reorder with this kernel and sda is now sdf. sda is the USB flash drive with the installation.

Does running ‘udevadm trigger’ helps detect any missing device?

Tried that before - no.


After a few mknods, I ended with "guix system init.." at Not enought space as there is only 1GB of RAM and it seems the install fetches too much packages into ramdisk. Why is it not using the target file system already?
