I've responded to this email on the guix-bugs emailing list located 

I did try a guix system vm /path/to/config-file.scm;  and I could still 
not log into guixSD.

I think I might create another guix user.  If I can't login as joshua, 
perhaps I'll try logging in as "rupert" and see if that works (I'll do 
this via editing my config file and running guix system reconfigure).
