Hello Efraim and Vagrant,

thank you for your help so far. I still have problems booting from nvme. This is my guix situation:

Here's a link¹ to my pinebookpro config. The short version is you need
to change the bootloader to use grub-efi (apparently I went with
grub-efi-removable-bootloader but I don't remember why)

       (bootloader grub-efi-removable-bootloader)
       (targets '("/boot/efi"))
       (keyboard-layout keyboard-layout)))

And you need to add /boot/efi as a vfat file system.

     (cons* (file-system
              (device (file-system-label "Guix_image"))
              (mount-point "/")
              (type "btrfs")
              (options "compress=zstd,discard,space_cache=v2"))
              (mount-point "/boot/efi")
              (device (file-system-label "GNU-ESP"))
              (type "vfat"))

I'm attaching the configuration I used, this is the command:

$ guix system image --image-type=pinebook-pro-raw --system=aarch64-linux 

$ sudo dd if=/gnu/store/r02skdx8jq35mdhh0l8sij423ksqk0hm-disk-image 
of=/dev/nvme0n1 bs=4M status=progress oflag=sync

but what I got after choosing nvme is in the pinebook-pro-raw.jpg I attached.


Then I noticed that in your configuration [0] you mention the format efi-raw, so I tried:

guix system image --image-type=efi-raw --system=aarch64-linux libre.scm
which gives me

guix system: error: EFI bootloader required with GPT partitioning

What am I doing wrong :( ? Again, thank you for the time you are putting in this.
