Thank you for your advice.

At first it's my first installation of GuixSD. My config.scm is edited at locale, users, file-systems only from original desktop-config.scm.

My knowladge of guixsd configuration is not enogh to make my own configuration yet. but my expectation is that I could ajdust system configuration according to ordinal way of postinstallation.

For instance, locale setting at config.scm is to install additional fonts according to locale or config of multiboot is that I could edit /etc/grub.d/40_custom for postinstallation.

Cause of I don't know guixsd way yet.

Regarding multiboot, I tried myself some months ago and it worked fine

bootloader-configuration? (see info guix --search menu-entries).

Here is the example from the manual:
Should you want to list additional boot menu entries via the
menu-entries field above, you will need to create them with the
menu-entry form. For example, imagine you want to be able to boot
another distro (hard to imagine!), you can define a menu entry along
these lines:

  (label "The Other Distro")
  (linux "/boot/old/vmlinux-2.6.32")
  (linux-arguments '("root=/dev/sda2"))
  (initrd "/boot/old/initrd"))
