Installing GuixSD on an external USB hard drive

Hi Guix,

So I'm installing GuixSD on an external USB hard drive.

This is obviously quite useful to test and setup all before you switch
to it. I plan to eventually install on laptop.

I could do it in a VM but...

Anyway, the install went flawless and docs are great.

*After a reboot*, I did a guix pull and system reconfigure.

(I did change the drive letter, since post reboot grub was on sdb, not c)

I got an error saying:

unknown location, you may need these modules in the initrd: uas
usb_storage .

It then pastes the snippet of code. Really cool and useful.

Though, bit confused why the install worked and rebooted, yet post
reboot I now require it?

Moving on, I add the snippet of code but it errors out with:

usb_storage module not found.

A find shows the module is in the 4.16 dir, named usb-storage.

Note - not _.

I thought perhaps that's the issue so I changed the code to specify mod
usb-storage (not _).

However I then get the orig error, that I should add usb_storage mod in

Suppose the question is why is usb_storage not found?

Any ideas?

(sorry for lack of exact messages, don't have remote access to system at mo)
