Installing Guix System on an external hard drive

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to install Guix System to an external hard drive from
existing Guix System on my laptop, but I encounter an error after
running "sudo guix system init /mnt/etc/config.scm /mnt

guix system: error:
--boot-directory /mnt/boot --bootloader-id=Guix --efi-directory
/mnt/boot/efi' exited with status 1; output follows:

  doesn't exist. Use --target or --directory.

My target machine is an UEFI, x86_64 system.
The hard drive is partitioned and mounted in the following way:

├─sdb1        vfat            511,7M     0% /mnt/boot
├─sdb2        btrfs           143,8G     3% /mnt
├─sdb3        btrfs            this will be /home
└─sdb4        btrfs            this doesn't matter

That's how my bootloader and file-systems configuration looks like:

   (bootloader grub-efi-bootloader)
   (target "/boot/efi")
   (keyboard-layout keyboard-layout)))
  (cons* (file-system
          (mount-point "/boot")
           (uuid "71B0-513F" 'fat))
          (type "vfat"))
          (mount-point "/")
           (file-system-label "root"))
          (type "btrfs"))
          (mount-point "/home")
           (file-system-label "home"))
          (type "btrfs"))

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but don't know what.
