Hi Ricardo!

I used the guix-system-install-1.0.1.i686-linux iso, verified the authenticity 
of the image and got:

gpg: assuming signed data in 'guix-system-install-1.0.1.i686-linux.iso.xz'
gpg: Signature made Sun 19 May 2019 04:47:37 PM EDT

And the system configuration (which I had to write down on hand so beware if 
you find any syntactic or semantic errors, I reviewed several times but, in 

(use-modules (gnu))
(use-service-modules desktop networking ssh xorg)

    (locale "en_US.utf8")
    (timezone "America/Santiago")
        (keyboard-layout "us" "alt-intl"))
            (bootloader grub-bootloader)
            (target "/dev/sda")
            (keyboard-layout keyboard-layout)))
        (list   (mapped-device
                        (uuid "xxxx"))
                    (target "cryptroot")
                    (type luks-device-mapping))
                        (uuid "yyyy"))
                    (target "crypthome")
                    (type luks-device-mapping))))
        (cons*  (file-system
                    (mount-point "/")
                    (device "/dev/mapper/cryptroot")
                    (type "ext4")
                    (dependencies mapped-devices))
                    (mount-point "/home")
                    (device "/dev/mapper/crypthome")
                    (type "ext4")
                    (dependencies mapped-devices))
    (host-name "my-hostname")
        (cons*   (user-account
                    (name "my-user")
                    (comment "my-full-name")
                    (group "users")
                    (home-directory "/home/my-user")
                        '("wheel" "netdev" "audio" "video")))
            (list   (specification->package "i3-wm")
                    (specification->package "nss-certs"))
            (list   (service gnome-desktop-service-type)
                    (service tor-service-type)
                    (set xorg-configuration
                            (keyboard-layout keyboard-layout))))

I also saw in the web that only libreboot could see an encrypted /boot, not the 
case for the proprietary BIOS, is that true? Maybe that should be the reason it 
sent me to a Guile REPL?

Thanks for contacting me!

This probably means that it couldn’t unlock the disk or wasn’t able to
find the unlocked partition.

It falls back to a rescue Guile REPL, which is what you’ve been
interacting with.

Could you please share your operating system configuration and the
version of Guix you used to install?
