Hi Ryan!

Installing on armhf/aarch64 SBCs is not easy. I'm not sure the graphical 
installer is available for these platforms.

The tarball you found is for installing Guix, the package manager, on top of 
another distro. It's not the distro itself.

This blog post might help figuring out what you need for generating an 
installer image for your board:

For generating the correct image from x86, you'll need to cross-compile the 
installer with --target=arm-linux-gnueabihf (for armhf).

Good luck!
