Help Installing GuixSD on ThinkPad X60 tablet

Subject: Help Installing GuixSD on ThinkPad X60 tablet

I'm having a problem I hope someone can help me with :( I just got a refurbished ThinkPad X60 Tablet with 3GB RAM and a 128 SSD, and I was reading about the free distros that are available so I could later install libreboot and saw there was Guix, and I found it great! But the thing is, it wouldn't work :(

I downloaded the i686 iso and flashed it to a 3.0 USB Kingston DataTraveler with Balena Etcher, it worked fine, it booted, I followed the graphical install, set the language and keymap, location, and chose to use full disk with separate home partition and full encryption, I also selected i3 and openbox as desktops and lastly mozilla https and tor network.

It installed without errors, and asked me to reboot, after that it asked me the / encryption passphrase, got to the grub screen, then asked me the home passphrase, aaand... it booted to Gnu Guile! And by typing ",help guix" it only showed me the option to switch to bournish language! I read every single command that ",help all" showed me but none helped, I saw also something about "repl" in the welcome message but tried it and the command didn't work either.

Then I thought maybe it was something about the greeter not being installed so I reinstalled with Gnome and i3 but same thing, booted to Guile, and I don't know how to boot the os itself.

If anyone knows what I did wrong or had a similar situation, I would gladly appreciate it, I really wanted to try out Guix :( If you need any more information, I can provide. Thanks in advance!
