I installed from Debian using:
guix system init /mnt/etc/bare-bones.scm /mnt
where /mnt is /dev/sda3 (which is also specified on bare-bones.scm). It was 
correctly finished except it could not install GrUB. So it would not boot. 
Moreover, rEFInd, the libre EFI boot loader, did not recognize GuixSD. So I 
tryed 2 things:
1. Booting from the GuixSD USB installer and executing:
guix system reconfigure /mnt/etc/bare-bones.scm
but it would give error: cannot build derivation
2. From Debian I executed:
But I get error:
/gnu/store/...-grub-2.02/lib/grub/x86_64-efi/ does not exist. Please 
specify --target or --directory.
This has the same error with these also:
grub-install /dev/sda
grub-install /dev/sda --efi-directory=/mnt/boot/efi
Plus the GuixSD USB installer lacks 
/gnu/store/...-grub-2.02/lib/grub/x86_64-efi directory.

How can I boot from the GuixSD installed partition?
