OK, just to make sure could you also look if this gives your "rootfs"

  # e2label /dev/sdaN

I realized that this error doesn't make sense: there is no any "vmlinuz"
in GuixSD.  IIUC this error appears after grub tried to boot one of its
entries, right?  What is the name of this grub entry?

I have a feeling that you see an error from a grub that wasn't installed
by guix.  My guess is: it tries to load some other distro and doesn't
find its kernel (which is called "vmlinuz").

Probably the grub wasn't installed by GuixSD, and an old grub (from a
previous distro) left.  Did you see any error during "guix system init"?
