Hi Alex,
Indeed, I had an encrypted disk. So I have just quickly reinstalled Guix 
without encryption and it works even though I received the same error messages 
and warning. I have bought this laptop to run any free Linux OS but I intended 
to use Guix especially. I will update the system and check errors later.
Thanks :)
