Let's try to provide value in our replies, or at least stay positive
:-).  It seems Gottfried is looking for a way to keep their Guix System
available along other GNU/Linux systems.

As Florian already mentioned, the challenge will be in configuring the
bootloader.  For moving Guix itself, you could copy its root file system
using 'cp -a', or opt to reinstall from your config.scm as already
mentioned up-thread.  Sadly, for the complex part (the bootloader
configuration), I'll leave it to someone more knowledgeable than myself
to provide concrete answers, but I believe you'll want to read on
something called multi-boot.  There's a GRUB example here [0].

Good luck!
