Re: I couldn't boot Guix installed on nvme m.2

Thanks for the info. As I had Debian on the SSD disk, I finally managed to
make the Guix run by two ways. First I upgraded the firmware of my bios.
That gave me some more options on the nvme m.2 disk, nothing very clear. In
one way' I installed Guix on a Gpt partition disk, using guided install on
the complete disk. And modified the debian grub with grub-customizer so it
gave me the option to select Guix. The other way I tried was directly
making a mbr partition table on the nvme m.2 disk and installing the grub
without EFI.
The two ways managed to quirky boot.
But I have a new problem!
It says that the clock is unsyncronized, during boot time (I don't know how
important is this because debian doesn't seem to bother). and it gives me a
Modem error, it seems it doesn't recognize the device. But during
installation the modem seemed to work perfectly...
So finally when it opens "new session c1 from user gdm" then gives an
"removed session c1"... "new session c2 from user gdm" and so on in an
interminable open and closed sessions hang.
Can anybody help me with this issue?
I don't understand if some kernel parameter may make me some magic and give
me the normal login access.
Thanks! I attached the image of the login messages.
