Hi Florian,
Thanks for the reply.
I have Intel HD Graphics 4600 (CPU-integrated), my laptop is from cannot boot into the system 
even though I'm writing nomodeset in grub/linux line by pressing e but I was 
able to install the system after writing nomodeset during installation. 
I could not boot the system, even once, after the initial installation.
Pressing CTRL+Alt+F2/3 etc do not do anything during grub boot time and then I 
end up with the gray background and guix logo, so i cannot get any TTY. At this 
point, I cannot access /etc/config.scm to add uvesafb or an older kernel.
Any ideas what to do? 
 Verzonden met Tutanota, veel plezier met beveiligde en advertentievrije
