Hello,
My failed attempt to use https://webchat.freenode.neton an smartphone led 'civodul' on IRC to ask me to share the details of my problem with the installation of Guix (SD) via email.
This is my first ever installation of Guix where I chose:
1. Separate Boot (/boot) and EFI (/boot/efi) partitions
2. Encrypted root (having used it in Debian for the last 10 months, I am comfortable)
3. Everything is formatted as Ext4 except the EFI partition.
The installer said it had installed the system successfully and that I can remove the installation media and boot the system. To my surprise, system never asked for the password of the root partition and led to an error saying it find the kernel. You can see this in the photograph attatched to this email.
I thank you for considering my issue and hope to fix it sooner than later as Guix is the only operating system I have installed.
Thank You,Akshay

It seems cryptsetup is never invoked and the root partition is not decrypted before GRUB could load the kernel.

This just isn't possible (yet).
There's no support in Guix System for a separate, unencrypted, /boot partition. If you want a Guix System with full disk encryption you'll have to keep /boot as a regular subdirectory and enter your passphrase twice.
Both of these limitations could be removed by someone sufficiently motivated and/or annoyed :-)
Kind regards,

Thank You for the reply, Tobias.
Will try setting up and report back in a few hours.
I figured any distro would require a separate /boot partition with an encrypted root since debian does. I guess not.

I reinstalled the system with encrypted root and without a separate /boot partition and it boots successfully!
Thank you Tobias.
