First, make sure you have copied guix installer using proper methods like "dd", 
as mentioned in guix manual.

Second, on reboot, as soon as you see the Libreboot Graphic Art, press arrow 
keys to
change the menu entry. Then choose “Search for GRUB2 configuration on external 
media [s]” and wait for the
Guix System from USB drive to load.
