Sure.  I'll add it to my schedule.

My problem was that I could not do a guix pull, because I could not boot
into the laptop.  Grub would load, and display Guix System boot option,
but after that it would show a blank screen.  Essentially how do you fix
a laptop that will not boot guix, via a guix usb install image?
