I'm sure there are many ways to do this, but I don't think there is a
single turn-key solution for this scenario at this time (install GuixSD
into a single partition and dual boot it alongside another distro).  If
you search the guix-devel and guix-help email lists for keywords like
"install to partition" or "dual boot partition", I think you'll find
many relevant email threads.  Multiple people have done this, and they
have done it using various methods.  The one thing all these methods
seem to have in common is that they require careful manual upkeep, since
some of the configuration is not managed by GuixSD.

Personally, I avoid dual booting because I have found it is fragile, and
I don't think the current version of GuixSD plays very nicely with it.
I can easily imagine myself accidentally overwriting my bootloader by
running "guix system reconfigure" but forgetting to pass
"--no-bootloader", for example.
