I'm back.

But here I did not know how to proceed? There is no grub-install in this chrooted /gnu/store(, which is weird, because a complete system should contain all files to update itself, right?).

What am I missing?
Or can you only create an EFI system installation when you're already running on one?

So I ran the install image in qemu with EFI firmware and ran through the graphical installer. The guided graphical install failed, manually running guix system init worked. You can find the outputs under [1].
Looks like a bug, but I have no idea how to give you more info.

To summarize:

1. I wish it would be possible to system init an efi system from a bios system.

2. The guided gui installer should not fail when installing inside qemu with EFI. The qemu cmdline was
$ qemu-system-x86_64 -m 2048 -smp 3 -enable-kvm \
        -bios /usr/share/edk2-ovmf/x64/OVMF.fd \
  -nic user,model=virtio-net-pci -boot menu=on,order=d \
  -drive file=/dev/nbd1 \
  -drive media=cdrom,file=guix-system-install-1.3.0.x86_64-linux.iso
