Yes, but it's okay :) We can answer it here, too.

The first issue, with adwaita-icon-theme, can be worked around by
running whichever command failed with the '--fallback'. This will build
from source anything that failed to be downloaded.

Regarding `guix pull`, can you tell us which tests failed?

In general, my advice for installing GuixSD is to start with the
simplest GuixSD system configuration file (typically /etc/config.scm)
that you can boot the new system with. Once you've installed GuixSD, you
can edit your configuration file and reconfigure the system to include
all the bells and whistles.

I recommend this because the installation process is relatively fragile
compared to reconfiguring an installed system. So, if you make the
installation rely on the smallest number of packages and services, you
have a better chance of success.

I don't have much experience with EFI. Hopefully somebody else has some
advice here.
