So it finally happened after a few days of trying and the excellent help here.  
Thanks to all.

I have a VirtualBox VM running on Mac OSX High Sierra.

I just succeded installing, resizing & guix pulling via the 0.15 binary VM image. (total time took some hours from commit=v0.15 from berlin)

Most of the time was used to figure out how to resize the qcow2-image and configure qemu. You gotta love free software! <3

Will post guide or blog post when I am satisfied (SSH into to the guest does not work yet for some reason).

Took a few days to compile everything from sources using 
--substitute-urls="”.  Don’t do this unless you are 
very patient.
Berlin had all needed substitutes for my bare-bones.tmpl ->config.scm.
While installing the new VM, I found some issues with the install scripts:

I never ran into this as I am running 0.15, NOT vanilla.

Sorry, I had to edit the builder script and remove the tests to get this to 
install.  I guess I will install this properly later when it gets fixed.
You could create your own custom package.

I (sorry Mark) edit the 
rsgj5syf4azvg4y80gqbr94gr4i9226y-guix-artwork-6998d30-checkout.drv file and 
changed it to

I know your not supposed to edit these, but had I not, I would be waiting for a 
while.  When these are fixed, I will install them properly.

I guess I was the guinea pig to show that there are some issues with the 
install that need to be addressed.
Aren't we all. Now you know what BETA feels like :D

Thanks everyone.  Now I can play with the fresh OS.

Happy hacking!

Would you be willing to post a screenshot?
