Yes, I was told the same when I asked in irc.  I think that should be 
underlined in the manual because it is very confusing.  I was really wondering 
what I was doing wrong.  In fact, I should have read the code directly.

I've been able to install archlinux which uses syslinux as its bootloader, I 
plan to keep the base install of archlinux in a first time and guix for the 
rest, and when I am be a bit more familiar with guix and can confidently 
generate a syslinux based bootloader configuration I'll use `guix system 
reconfigure` as you suggested. 

I've tried other grub based live-usbs, and all fail at the same point whatever 
the setup of GRUB so I think this is a GRUB bug (probably introduced fairly 
recently because my previous bootloader was GRUB and it worked perfectly).
