Presumably used grub-efi-removable-bootloader because the u-boot
implementation does not support using EFI variables, and so you have to
use the generic boot location (e.g. ../efi/boot/bootaa64.efi
vs. ../efi/guix/grubaa64.efi).

I would imagine tow-boot would also support the syslinux-style menus
(extlinux.conf) generated by guix as well... there was some way to
generate them without actually installing u-boot (although tow-boot
should make installing u-boot irrelevent and neither helpful nor

live well,
