For me the Guix System installer crashes reproducibly after manual
partitioning, even when not formatting the partition.  The ESP and
root partition have not been deleted (no matter if I tell the
installer to format them or not).  This applies to EFI installation on
my 2010 Macbook but not in QEMU.  Perhaps the reason is the partition
I’m trying to format previously was LUKS-encrypted.

I switch to a console and type

/gnu/store/*kmscon*/bin/kmscon --debug --login /gnu/store/*installer 2>out

The suspicious part of the output is at time 60:

I tested an installer manually created from the version-1.1.0 branch
with Tobias’ compression patch applied
I believe it makes no difference.  I would really like that compression.

In QEMU I can even install with a toggle layout even though the guix
package appears not to have been updated to include your fix.

On an Acer Aspire 5738PG with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 the
installer remains black.  I pressed ctrl-alt-f3 and typed

modprobe uvesafb v86d=$(guix build v86d | head -n1)/sbin/v86d 

but it says “guix build: error: v86d: unknown package”, probably
because the guix package has not been updated recently.
